It is a first part of a three year long exhbition series which will intriduce you to history, the present, and the future of foo. It captures the transition from hunter gatherin society, to agriculture and domestication of animals. It documents usage of artificial fertilizers and also genetic engineering. The exhibition shows that there is more to eating than to absorbing nutricients. What, where, how much we eat are expressions of culture, world-opinion, ideas of the world, lifestyle, traditions, habits, wealth, poverty, gender, and age.
