EXPO Throwaway, the history of a modern crisis

GUIDES Standing guides

BEHIND THE SCENES Behind the scenes of the exhibition Throwaway and the museum’s professions


At the House of European History, you will take a journey through the history of Europe and try to envisage its future. For example, through the exhibition Throwaway, which highlights the hidden history of waste in Europe. It shows the huge changes in the way we have dealt with our waste in the past, and how we think, or don’t think, about waste. By looking at this aspect of history, the project reinforces the relevance of current critiques and calls for change.
