From 14 September until 29 October 2023, the photographic exhibition Foodprint: the Mediterranean Diet Revisited is being hosted at the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST), in Athens.
The project explores why the Mediterranean Diet is relevant to our lives today and connects Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Cyprus and Croatia through the works of five photographers. Recognised by UNESCO as part of humanity’s Intangible Heritage due to its unique set of qualities, the Mediterranean Diet consists mostly of plant-based foods, such as vegetables, grains, nuts, legumes and fruits. Born out of poverty, it also provides solutions to some of the most critical problems facing the planet today, such as the loss of biodiversity, food waste and climate change.
Photographs by Johann Clausen, Elena Heatherwick, Myrto Papadopoulou, Chris de Bode and Maria Contreras Coll capture different aspects of the Mediterranean Diet today, while parallel activities include photography workshops, documentary screenings and cooking events. The exhibition at EMST is part of a European tour that so far includes Italy, Cyprus, Turkey, Croatia and Albania.
