I eat, therefore I am
Now on - Jun 1, 2020

Here's some food for thought! This brand-new exhibition at the Musée de l'Homme explores the concept of food through the lens of social anthropology, unpacking the complex and multifarious role of food within and across cultures.

The exhibition will deal with the ecological effects of food choices; healthy eating, the social and cultural construction of taste, the question of whether certain foods are 'gendered', table manners, gastro-diplomacy, agricultural models, culinary heritage, meat consumption, and much more.

With thought-provoking interactive exhibits, round table discussions with food-industry experts, and food-related artworks from artists like Pablo Picasso, Gilles Barbier, Pilar Albarracin, and Liu Bolin, I eat, therefore I am will satisfy any appetite for knowledge!

You're about to enter a world of human beings. Beings of thought. Beings of social purpose and skill. Beings who create other beings all over this beautiful planet!

Evolutionary biology is the name of the game at Paris's Musée de l'Homme. Channel your inner Neanderthal and get involved! See 20 preserved animal brains, from a lizard's to an elephant's to, you guessed it, a human brain.

Get up close to 350 skulls and heads of real people. Some are real, some are made from plaster cast. And don't forget to get a coffee or lunch in the cafe - it boasts excellent views of the Eiffel Tower.

It's a great museum! The exhibits and the flow are really well done. The interactive games are interesting and good for kids. The description of the exhibits, however, are all in French. So I had to download an image to text translator. It would be better if there was an audio tour or descriptions in English.
