Studio Olafur Eliasson: The Kitchen

25 April 2016 / Publication

“When I eat, it is an experience that is extremely individual. But by eating together with others, I situate my experience within a space that is very much collective – the meal, the act of eating together, the shared conversation. (…) Just as I can never be entirely certain that the color I call blue is the same blue for everyone else on the planet, taste is relative. What we have in common is that we are different.” Olafur Eliasson

Phaidon is publishing Studio Olafur Eliasson: The Kitchen in April 2016. The extended artist’s book and cookbook that focuses on the studio’s kitchen – its work, research, and experiments – is based on the studio publication TYT [Take Your Time], Vol. 5: The Kitchen. Since the work and food thinking of the kitchen team are closely connected with the projects, symposia, workshops, openings, and events at the studio as well as the Institut für Raumexperimente and the studio’s project space Grey Sheep, the book is a portrait of the studio seen from the perspective of the kitchen. Along with over 100 vegetarian recipes, the book provides insight into the daily life of the studio with the kitchen at its heart, and documents a wide range of workshops, food experiments, and selected exhibitions.

We hope you recognize and remember many of the happings at the Institut für Raumexperimente, while reading and cooking from the pages.
