I cook, therefore I am

From Friday 10 February 2017, the Wereldmuseum (Rotterdam) presents the exhibition I cook, therefore I am. A culinary tale by Abdelkader Benali. Rotterdam is the perfect stage for this: a world city with a rich and unrivaled diversity of food cultures. With an intriguing and impressive selection from the museum collection, supplemented with exceptional pieces on loan, writer and historian Abdelkader Benali and art historian Alexandra van Dongen present the story of the role of food in our earthly existence.

Our friends at Skipintro asked us to shoot and edit a series of videos in which Abdelkader Benali takes the viewer to a variety of kitchens in Rotterdam. The series was produced together with HotelRebel, Krijn van Noordwijk and Erik Thomassen.

The series is part of a exhibition of the Wereldmuseum and will be shown until the 30th of Juli 2017. Therefore, we can not display the series here on our website. Below you can get an impression of the production. And if you really want to see it for yourself, you know where to go!
