THE FAG END OF HISTORY
TOBACCO: STIMULATING CONFLICT

Between sickness and pleasure, health and lifestyle, the consumption of tobacco has become a controversial issue. And yet tobacco was initially regarded as a remedy. As a stimulant it was soon popular throughout Europe and then the whole world. But tobacco has always been targeted by anti-smoking movements, too. Since the 1980s, smoking has been discussed primarily from the health point of view, while associated cultural benefits have been ignored. Is a centuries-old cultural phenomenon now slowly disappearing from public life? The exhibition examines the ambiguous role of tobacco, from cultural stimulation to ill-health.
