From Sunday 29 March to Sunday 26 July, the SERIAL EATER exhibition will dissect thirty years of experimentation and reflection on the “food object”.

Since its development in the 1990s until its current involution, Food design analysis will help offer an understanding of how consumption habits and our awareness of the food system have evolved. What type of consumers are we, how do we assess our impact in the current scenario and what are we going to accept on our plates?

In a sometimes anxiety-provoking approach SERIAL EATER unveils the future of food; Food design questions our behaviour, desires and doubts as eaters. It also proposes a more entertaining vision of our relationship to food, whilst not forgetting its primary objective: nourishing our stomachs, eyes and minds.
