With 'The Sweet and Sour Story of Sugar' Noorderlicht goes further in the direction begun in its Global Detail (2003) photo festival. The process of globalisation, as radical as it is elusive, is once again the subject for an exhibition and a photo book. This time however Noorderlicht wants to go into greater depth by approaching the operation of the 'global economy' from the perspective of just one product. Here sugar is the starting point for an investigation of the forces of globalisation. It is a story which forces one to look beyond boundaries of space and time, at a product that is simultaneously ordinary, and boundless.
