With "Type550", the young designers react in terms of content and artistically to the location of an old mill. The concept is directly dedicated to flour, bread and its significance for the
Society. The spatial staging consciously irritates the visitors in their viewing habits and thus sharpens the view of one of our most important cultural assets. Through artistic
visualised kitchen experiments, the world of bread baking is reopened to the public. What is important, what ratio of ingredients is necessary? Which tradition determines the baking of bread? The
anthropological constant, the cultural technique, the craft, the aesthetics and the practice. Along a long table, the knowledge of cereals, grain, milling, flour, salt and water is deciphered.
Flour or bread is an anthropological constant in all cultures. The concept and exhibition focus on an archaic staple food that everyone knows; they close the cycle
of the food from its basic shape to the finished product in a demonstration workshop.
