Arpad Dobriban,
Dusseldorf-based artist Arpad Dobriban has sought after food recipes from the past in order to put them directly back into practice among a wider community. After an initial interview, Dobriban invites people to his “mobile kitchen” and asks them to teach him about the preparation of dishes, which might still be part of their families' everyday menu. Dobriban's field studies also permit the recounting of other developments in popular culture or migration movements.
