29 January – 13 March: Gabriele Galimberti, Home Pharma a transcultural perspective on our intimate relationship with pills
Whenever I meet people on my travels, I ask the same question: Can I see what’s in your medicine cabinet?
In almost every country in the Western world, hidden away in a corner of the bathroom or kitchen, pills, capsules and ointments pile up. In France alone, almost one medicine out of two will not be consumed. In contrast to this wasteful behavior, developing countries suffer from a chronic lack of access to healthcare. “Home Pharma” documents our relationship with medicines in the simplest terms possible. In order to show that medicine is not just a mere commodity, but is a litmus test of the society we live in, this project penetrates the intimacy of families around the world.
