C#ke Stories was the first exhibition curated by the The School of Cake, which took place at the Academy of Art
and Design Basel in January 2018. The interactive exhibition consisted of ten screens, arranged in a circle on
individual table set ups. Each screen showed a looped film of a person eating cake, from the corresponding
food film series C#ke Stories.
The individuality of each set up with a correlating film of a person eating was in reference to information gathered
from previously conducted interviews, in which participants described how they frequently eat alone at their desks
in front of their laptops and computers during the day. During the exhibition viewers were given cake and
encouraged to enter into an eating dialogue with a screen of their choice.

“#Kuchen ist für mich ultra zentral als #Wahrnehmung von #Gemütlichkeit.
So #grinsen, wie mit einem #Freund wenn man #besoffen oder #bekifft ist.
Ich esse eigentlich #immer alleine.
Kuchen möchte ich nicht #alleine essen.”
