Art history as a topping / Marie Sophie Hingst
You do not play with food!
Never before have so many people put so much effort into filling their bread: with a full fridge, virtuoso knife strokes and a large pinch of humor, numerous bread artists dared to work on the well-known masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Frida, at the breakfast table or at dinner Kahlo or Joseph Beuys. Sometimes astonishingly close to the original, like Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" made of meat sausage and pear on wholemeal bread, sometimes with a little more artistic freedom, like the paper-wrapped loaf of bread based on the packaging artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
The range of different materials and techniques used in the creative breads with jam, cheese sandwiches and sliced sausages is just as multifaceted as the works of art themselves. Rarely has art history been so happily devoured.
