How many people in the world eat with knives and forks, how many with their fingers and hands? When and where was canned food invented? And which months are part of the oft-cited “season” for what kind of vegetables in Germany? These are just some of the questions you can find the answer to at Domäne Dahlem.
Germany’s first permanent exhibition on the cultural history of nutrition is a journey from 1850 into the present. Through hundreds of exhibits, many interactive stations, narrative settings and media stations visitors can discover that “nutrition” is much more than just “nourishment”. The exhibition design playfully examines the topic “food” through associations and creates a lively tale: Listening devices hidden in cups, showcases in the shape of foldable pizza boxes or interactive food scanners are just some of the multifaceted narrative.
The exhibition received several national awards.
