Food Cultures. Good Food in the Times of Mobile Ingredients

Good food, produced ecologically sustainable and socially faire, has long since become a luxurious good, which is a means of identity for people. In periods of opulence the joining of culture and eating often becomes an »event«. But for many peoples it is impossible or very difficult to supply themselves with healthy food because of the high prices. This raises the question whether social backgrounds are factors for the decision if food is something special or just a necessity.

This miscellany searches playfully for these aspects - and admits the daily language use: food culture as a positive term; how we deal with the eaten food, the waste, the digestion and the desire to eat healthily and at the same time to thin down.

The authors are scientists, artists and activist. The book accompanies the exhibition »Mobile Food« in Upper Austria in 2011.
