Food As A Visual Medium
A new art exhibit showcases innovative and imaginative ways for viewers to think about food as a visual medium
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. The brainchild of Swiss Restaurant owner and artist Daniel Spoerri, this movement coined Eat Art (meaning art made with and involving food) can be seen at his Eat Art Gallery. Opened in 1970, and showcasing numerous artists, is not just a legitimate but also celebrated art form in it’s Teutonic homeland.
