Of the numerous possible readings of this exhibition, a few will be made in these visits. From historical perspectives of civilizational and technological evolution, population growth and diversification of societal organization, distribution of wealth and land occupation and correlations with food production – our immediate energy source – and the consumption of resources that “feed” an increasingly global western lifestyle. The solutions taken in the past and the proposals for the future will be questioned in the light of the movements of Agro-ecology and Permaculture.
