3G – Communal kitchen

Showcase installation in an empty shop

3G – COMMUNAL KITCHEN is one of the various interventions iCollective made in the frame of the project 3G-SHOP. It is an innovative concept of sharing a communal cooking space. iCollective displayed the idea as an interactive installation with sound, lights and illustrations.

3G-SHOP  is a series of artistic interventions in empty shops in Berlin´s district of Moabit, developed in different phases: research, production and impact. Firstly, we hosted a two-day workshop with the locals, where we collected impressions, ideas and needs, alongside discussing different possibilities for local development. During these meetings we tried to merge individual wishes with collective needs for that specific neighborhood. This time was dedicated to research, conceptual definitions and interchange with the neighbors. After that, iCollective’s team analyzed the ideas that came out during the meetings and proposed an installation in order to imaginatively recreate it.
