People's kitchen

This mobile kitchen brings people in contact by cooking and eating a collaboratively prepared dinner.


The People's Kitchen makes it possible to eat at otherwise inaccessible locations, like construction sites or vacant buildings. It consists of a system of used wooden fruit crates put together with shelves and wedges. The crates also function as storage for kitchen utensils and ingredients. For the build up, the cooking and dining, both invited guests and passersby are involved. The collaboration of strangers causes unexpected meetings and conversations. The People's Kitchen creates a temporary meeting place on inaccessible locations. As result, it creates a palpable contrast between the rough conditions on site and the warmth of the social interactions during the build up, cooking and eating.

The People's Kitchen is part of Rent-a-Project, a company that rents out multiple installations on a wide range of sites.
