ABOUT US

“If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos”
(E. O. Wilson)


WHAT IS MIKROKOSMOS?

MikroKosmos is a “growtainer” of ideas and projects that focuses on the universe of insects with the purpose to give them importance and overcome the gap of disgust and fear. We create new fields of interaction to arouse the curiosity of different consumers about insect matters and the nutritional value of insects. Besides our street food stand in Berlins, we are creating new contexts of communication and education through our pop-up restaurants, workshops, talks, theatre and other events. For that reason MikroKosmos is proposing three main fields of interaction:

EVENTS
To surprise consumers and clients we organize creative pop-up events, caterings and private dinners that are inspired by the world of insects and bring together art, music and culinary. 
Check our latest events

FOOD MARKET
Street markets are unique places where the art of cooking and the pleasure of tasting come together. With our street food stand we take part in different street food markets in Berlin in order to get closer to the people. At Markthalle Neun we offer every second Thursday different dishes that combine seasonal bio-products with edible insects that are permitted by the German law.  Healthy superfood that can be surprisingly delicious.

EDUCATION
Through workshops, talks, lectures and our website we want to inform consumers about the nutritional and environmental value of insects, discuss current scientific research projects and tell more about the different possibilities of infarming and ways of cooking edible insects.
