Villa Rot: There’s Something in the Air! – Scent in Art

The exhibition at the Museum Villa Rot (22/03/15 – 02/08/15) presents installations by international contemporary artists, who examine the sense of smell and fragrances, their cause, composition, effect and memory potential under different aspects. It also provides an art historical excursion which delivers insight into Futuristic and Surrealistic approaches and theories. Olfactory heritage is volatile, but an essential part of our material culture, and (art historical) past.

The exhibition is (co-)curated by Caro Verbeek (olfactory art historian) as part of her PhD-project ‘In Search of Scents Lost – Reconstructing the Aromatic Heritage of the Avant-garde’. It will be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue.
