From 4 March to 30 June 2021 we turn our attention to meat, following it from the table back via the butcher’s shop and the slaughterhouse to the farm. We reveal what’s in the meat we consume, where it comes from, and where its future lies. The exhibition features fascinating objects from the collections of the Swiss National Library, including Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s visions of butchers, Daniel Spoerri’s Eat Art, Bell sausage advertisements and much more.
