Humans are permanently dependent on food. And since time immemorial, we have been subject to constraints and restrictions when it comes to eating – for climatic, economical or cultural reasons. The exhibition examines which factors influence our diet, how this relationship has changed historically and what side effects our eating habits have on our environment.

How do religious customs, local traditions and global value chains affect our food culture today? How can global food security be guaranteed in the face of a rapidly growing world population? And what is “good” nutrition anyway?

Using examples from Luxembourg, the exhibition attempts to shed light on the relationship between people and their food. It follows the path of food from production to processing to consumption and also ventures a look at the eating habits of the future.

Booklet of the exhibition available at the museum for 7 EUR.
