Musée de l'Homme
16 Oct → 1 Jun 2020
From Wednesday to Monday from 11 am to 7 pm. Closed on Tuesday.
This "homemade" exhibition, "I eat so I am", approaches the subject of food in a singular and original way, under the transdisciplinary, but also transchronological prism. It reflects to as many people as possible the research carried out by the scientists of the National Museum of Natural History in fields as varied as taste formation, eating habits, gastrodiplomacy, agricultural models, culinary heritage, meat consumption, GMOs, the diet of our ancestors... An approach that is certainly scientific but presented in a playful and didactic way that would please adults and children alike. The tour alternates background themes, social debates and "surprise" subjects through the abundant presentation of prestigious objects, field collections and works by modern and contemporary artists such as Pablo Picasso, Gilles Barbier, Pilar Albarracin or Liu Baolin. Over the three rooms, covering 650 m², the exhibition thus develops the contemporary challenges of food in a sometimes offbeat setting: you can sit at the Elysée table, chat with a fictitious cow or admire a pastry chef's skull! To visit with your children.
