From the Museum Ritter:
******With this exhibition Museum Ritter is making a small departure from its normal exhibition programme and showing art relating to the subject of chocolate. The reason for this digression is the 100th anniversary of the Ritter company in 2012.
Apart from numerous works made of chocolate, the exhibition also contains a large number of works from a variety of disciplines which revolve around chocolate in the broadest sense. Thus the show with its almost 60 objects, paintings, prints, installations, photographs and videos by almost 40 artists from the 20th and 21st centuries gives 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. In short, this art has at least as many facets as there are varieties of chocolate
