The temptation of sugar in art and nominees Volkskrant Visual Arts Prize

Sticky Business. The temptation of sugar in art.
Heaven or hell:  for almost everyone sugar has some sort of connotation. Some use the sweetener to celebrate important events. Others see sugar as the white poison, the biggest enemy for our health. Food designer and guest conservator Marije Vogelzang invited some twenty (international) artists for this exhibition and sheds a new light on this societal theme. Let yourself be affected by the cola machine by Helmut Smits or lick the statues of women by Joseph Marr. Look at sugar in a way you’ve never done before. And learn about sugar in different cultures by way of almost eighty sweets, cookies and other delicacies.
On view until 18 February
