A very intriguing exhibition of the Cologne Passagen was Mike Mike Meires"Global Street Food", showing a great number of various street kitchens from all over the world which were researched and purchased over more than one year. "Complex minimalisation makes it possible to think about other processes" describes Meire his fascination with street food kitchens. Pictured above: street food stands from the United States and China.
After The Farm Project, Global Street Food is Mike Meires current installation for the Dornbracht Edges series of exhibitions. In contrast to The Farm Project, this new project is not about the domestic kitchen as the stage of life; it is about improvised kitchens set up in public spaces - in and on the streets.
A beautiful oasis of authenticity in the middle of the glossy design world wonderland and a great location to become aware of what kind of kitchen one really needs for one's respective lifestyle.
