Drauf geschissen! A small cultural history of the quiet place
The history of going to the toilet impressively reflects the lifestyles and experiences of people from a wide variety of eras. The infrastructure of sewage disposal in Roman cities, for example, is always fascinating. From today's point of view, however, the idea of how people in the Middle Ages relieved themselves in castles, villages and cities has a rather attractive ugliness. The special exhibition also sheds light on cleanliness and hygiene in antiquity, the splendor of the latrines in Rome, the decline of former high cultures in the Middle Ages and the organized disposal of faeces in the 19th century, the age of industrialization. Those interested can find out all this and more in the touring exhibition of Schloesserland Sachsen.
