Daniel Spoerri Holds the ‘Eating the Universe' Exhibition

"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.
