Abstract (English)

This collection of essays contextualises the representation and the use of food in the visual arts from an aesthetic and socio-cultural point of view. 18 authors (including artists) discuss subjects such as the relation between physical tasting and the critical process, the symbolism of food in Renaissance art, art practices involving cooking, and issues of globalisation/post-colonialism in relation to the choice/availability of food in the Western world. Biographical notes on contributors. Circa 90 bibl. ref.
