Video series: Fungi for Future

Our pop up exhibition "Fungi for Future" is all about the diverse world of fungi. These creatures possess an endless treasure trove of exciting properties and possibilities. In addition to the exhibition, our online offerings will provide you with further information on these fascinating organisms.

In our video series, we can dive a little deeper into the topics that are touched on in the exhibition: Fungi experts have their say here, we offer insights behind the scenes, additional information on the exhibition objects and great ideas and experiments that you can do with fungi!
