Art with Chocolate
13.05.2012 – 30.09.2012
The show gives a differentiated insight into art made of chocolate and art done with chocolate as its motif. Historical approaches by artists such as Kurt Schwitters, Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Beuys and Dieter Roth are every bit as present as “material pictures” or collages from the 1960s and 1970s, along with outstanding examples of cutting edge art done in chocolate. The works show how different artistic inquiries into chocolate have proved to be to this day – even if they are often highly seductive and always original. In short, this art has at least as many facets as there are varieties of chocolate.
