Kitchen Stories

Kitchen stories is a nice Norwegian movie exploring the problems observers can encounter during a research study. The movie is set in 1950 and is about an observer researching the kitchen usage of Norwegian bachelors, while trying to keep professional distance to the research subject – which not quite worked out (and which was actually quite good for the study – as the discussion about research methods after the movie proved). Really well worth watching.

Here’s the trailer



Yesterday it was the topic of a joint Munich IXDA event with anthropology students from LMU and for me it was really interesting, to share insights from projects with students who had a more scientific approach. Thanks Alexis and Sebastian for organizing!
