Summary/Abstract: Nourishment is not (only) a matter of biology, it brings society, culture, economy and, last but not least, the sacred together in its deeds and words. Together with sexuality, nourishment is probably the most „total“ social fact human sciences talk about. Hard to stage, the exhibition on nourishment in The Museum of the Romanian Peasant in Bucharest strives to encapsulate these complex dimensions, in a way which rounds and completes Horia Bernea's vision.
