"Eat Art" is a phrase thought up by Daniel Spoerri. Eat Art, otherwise known as art made with food, first sprung up in Düsseldorf shortly after Spoerri opened up a restaurant at the Burgplatz. While restaurant life was good, Spoerri had an obvious passion for art, particularly if it was edible. As a result, Spoerri opened up an art gallery dedicated to Eat Art way back in the early 1970s.

The yummy exhibition, ‘Eating the Universe,’ is one that deals with food-related issues such as mass consumerism, poor diets, affluence vs poverty and globalization.

Eat Art is an art form that has the potential to be more telling than any other. Stats for Edible Exhibitions Trending: Older & Chilly
