Odorama – Happiness

February 25, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Happiness and smell form an obvious pair, almost a cliché: perfume, roses, you name it.

This evening we will explore the more dark side of happiness and smells by focusing on the role of smell in the thinking of Friedrich Nietzsche. We discover the many sensory descriptions in the autobiography of Mariah Carey and the food aspect of happiness is not been forgotten. Not only saying the word cheese makes us look happy in photographs, also the chemical casein in cheese boosts the happiness hormones.

Speakers: Niels van Poecke, Pavel van Houten and Mathilde van Otterloo

Curator/Moderator: Frank Bloem

This event happens both online and offline (at Odorama – limited availability)
