Robert Karimi- The People’s Cook
Artist Karimi works with different communities to facilitate workshops of ‘interactive food experiences’. He performs in character as Mero Cocinero cultural events, trying to engage the community he is working with both in affordable, healthy food and in the artistic/ performative practice of preparing it. In his project, The Cooking Show con Karimi y Comrades Karimi creates recipes during his performances, and attempts to engage the community in question with the empowerment of cooking their own food and in doing so celebrating their culture.
