The Flour Sack as Art

When Volkmar Wywiol discovered an empty flour sack washed up on the beach in Dubai in 1998 he could scarcely guess the consequences this find would have. But Wywiol’s interest in the subject of flour sacks had been roused, and back in Hamburg he gained the enthusiastic support of his business associates and M├╝hlenchemie’s employees for the idea of a flour sack collection. Since then, over 1,600 exhibits from five continents have found their way into the “Gallery of Flour Sacks”.
