What it is: Food – its cultivation, preparation and communal consumption – has long been considered a form of cultural heritage. At this station we explore with you various cultural experiences and social bonds you have with food. We aim to discover how much food is our own edible identity and how much it is part of your nation building. What makes Austria so tasty for you? We aim to learn with you how your questions about food cultures may be addressed in various formats and with different results.
