The Cusp: Review on Osmodrama 2016-09-21 (english)

„The idea of using smells in art isn’t new, but its history isn’t particularly illustrious. Smell-o-Vision was voted one of the hundred worst ideas of all time; Scratch’n’Sniff didn’t fare much better. Osmodrama, a two-month festival in Berlin, was not deterred: centred on artist Wolfgang Georgsdorf’s digital scent-organ, ‘Smeller 2.0’, it was determined to showcase the possibilities of ‘olfactory art’ or ‘storytelling with smells’. Its various events included film screenings and literature readings accompanied by the organ’s ‘scent sequences’.“
