The art project “Transit Kitchen” was created and developed by Folke Kobberling and Martin Kaltwasser,
an artist duo from Berlin. It was commissioned by the Goethe-Institut and co-curated by No.9 and the
Goethe-Institut. “Transit Kitchen” is an invitation to Torontonians to analyze and deal with traffic, public
transit, cycling, pedestrian movement, with the most recent developments and attractive scenarios of
their continually more mobile metropolis, Toronto.
“Transit Kitchen”, on display at the Evergreen Brick Works for the summer of 2011, is a studio built by Kobberling and Kaltwasser, modeled after a TV cooking show. During the live performances on June 1 and 2, 2011 at Union Station, local experts in everyday urban mobility and had the opportunity to create their own mobility recipes.
The concept behind “Transit Kitchen” is to provide an opportunity for visionary, creative, and open- minded Canadians to present their utopias, ideas and wishes regarding the future of municipal transportation, public collective mobility, and movement culture in Toronto. The resulting ‘mobility recipes’, presented in the form of lists of ingredients, recipes, dishes, cooking methods and gourmet tips, is a new and innovative way to present solutions for a better urban lifestyle in Toronto.
“Transit Kitchen” has been moved to the Evergreen Brick Works, located in Building 16, and will be on display until August 15, 2011. The display will showcase the Union Station presentations as well as encourage the public to create and submit their own mobility recipes.
