Sewer, Cloaca, Toilet
March 8. – 10:00 - April 11. – 18:00
The Black House in Szeged presents an exciting new exhibition on the history of sewerage, toilets and hygiene in the exhibition entitled Sewer, Cloaca, Toilet.
The exhibition starts with the everyday toilet habits of ancient Roman citizens. It will also show how the predecessor of the portable toilet appeared in the 18th century in France, at the court of the Sun King. The exhibition uses a wealth of material from Szeged to tell the story of the city’s sewerage and water supply.
The exhibition also includes cholera in the context of hygiene, various shadow chairs, bedpans, bathroom reconstructions and many interesting stories.
And the rooms illustrating bathroom trends of the second half of the 20th century will be a source of nostalgia.
