Location: Domäne Dahlem, Berlin
Permanent exhibition Culinarium, 800 square meters
Assignment: concept, design, and realization
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? What kind of vegetables are when in season in Germany? These are just some 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 to the present. In 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” in 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.
