Antwerp, MAS (Museum Aan de Stroom)
June 8-9, 2017

Organized in conjunction with the exhibition 'Antwerp à la carte' at Antwerp's MAS, this 2-day international conference
examines the various and complex relations between food, the experience
of eating, and 19th-century art. Modern phenomena such as
industrialization, liberalization of the market, urbanization, rise of
the middle class, issues of nationality and gender, leisure time and
economic upheaval affected the gastronomic field as well as the
depiction of it in the visual arts. This new fascination for food was
reflected in the entire panoply of the artistic field, ranging from
recipes, food literature, decorative arts and interior design to works
of art and art criticism.
