ENVIRONMENT MUSEUM OF STYMPHALIA / KORINTHOS
FoodprintThe Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP), in cooperation with Anemon Productions, presents the photography exhibition Foodprint in the Environment Museum of Stymphalia until 26 February 2024.
On the theme of the Mediterranean Diet and its importance for people's lives today, the exhibition links Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Cyprus and Croatia through the photos taken by five European photographers who bring to life an ancient way of life and nutrition. This diet has been recognized by UNESCO as an element of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity due to its unique qualities. Based on frugality, sharing and seasonality, it provides solutions to some of the most critical problems facing the planet today such as the loss of biodiversity, food waste and climate change.
The photographs by Johann Clausen, Elena Heatherwick, Myrto Papadopoulou, Chris de Bode and Maria Contreras Coll depict the various aspects of the Mediterranean Diet today. The exhibition in the Environment Museum of Stymphalia is part of the European tour that until now includes Italy, Cyprus, Turkey, Croatia, Albania and the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) in Athens.
