Kitchens to Go
Mike Meiré’s exhibition of street-food carts is on display during Art Basel this week.
Art Basel attendees might want to check out Dornbracht‘s Global Street Food exhibition on display through Friday at the Vitra Design Museum. First shown at IMM Cologne last January, the exhibition presents improvised portable kitchens from around the world, including a Vietnamese market boat, a Sudanese tea stand, and an Argentinian charcuterie cart (yum) made from a bulletin board balanced on a shopping cart (hmm). It was curated by Mike Meiré, the Berlin-based art director of 032c magazine (of “the new ugly” movement) and Dornbracht’s creative and brand director. In a press release, Meire asks, “Can we manage to create a complete kitchen in two square meters?” Looks like it! More photos after the jump.
