From the land which brought us both the Frankfurter and the Hamburger comes a new gallery exhibit which hopes to make food fun again. Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, located in the busy German town of it’s namesake, recently opened an exhibit entitled Eating the Universe. Food in Art which showcases innovative and imaginative ways for viewers to think about food as a visual medium.
