2021 // "Mind the Fungi" book now available

The new year has hardly started, but the first fungal gem is already waiting for us: the book Mind the Fungi has been published! An e-book has been available since 15.12.2020. However, a print copy can now be purchased through the TU web shop. The book reports on how science and art can be combined as engines of creativity and how a living triad of science, art and society can be forged from this. A creative triad, which over a period of two years has committed itself to the utopia of enabling the synthesis of a sustainable economy, healthy environment and a just society. The project Mind the Fungi was a citizen science research project (2018 – 2020), intended to provide the public with an opportunity for scientific collaboration. On the one hand, the project aimed to provide the broader public with an understanding of the importance of fungal biotechnology for a sustainable future and, on the other hand, to establish a research network here at TU Berlin, in which, among other things, novel fungus-based biomaterials were to be researched with citizen scientists. Enjoy reading!
