The Secret Effect of Things. Dining Cultures - An Explorative Exhibition

As part of the BMBF-funded Project "Food and Culture", the exhibition is concerned with the significance of objects that are part of 19th-century middle-class dining culture. Artefacts from the collection Alexandre Poignard, a Belgian collector, are shown together with objects, texts, and images from other times and spaces, exploring the manifold meanings such objects can have in different contexts. Professor Nicole Maruo-Schröder and Maria Mothes from the English Department have worked together with colleagues from the University of Koblenz-Landau, the University of Bonn as well as the Landesmuseum Koblenz on the changing social and cultural significance of dining culture, focusing on 19th- and 20th-century literature and non-fiction.

The exhibition runs from October 22, 2020 to August 19, 2021. Festung Ehrenbreitstein, Landesmuseum Koblenz, Haus des Genusses.
