How does the act of eating shape our identity?
What role has diet played in our evolution?
What are the environmental impacts of producing resources to feed humanity?
BODY AND FOODS
A theatrical ambiance awaits visitors in the four thematic modules: prehistoric objects demonstrate the evolution of diet, an audiovisual narration examines how taste is formed, a large interactive diorama delves into dietary taboos, while a “curiosity cabinet” reveals the connections between gender and food.
The second part of the exhibition is devoted to the social, political, religious or identity-related aspects of food in human societies. Visitors are invited to take a seat at different tables throughout the world and discover a multitude of culinary arts.
Organised like a supermarket, the last part of the exhibition looks into the way we consume and produce the food of today and tomorrow. Here, the visitor can phone Dr. Moo for nutritional advice, compare the environmental cost of various tomatoes on the market, or explore the “foods of the future” section.
