Artist and anthropologist Matteo Guidi presents Cooking in Maximum Security, a research project developed on the cusp of art and social anthropology and designed to be implemented in different prisons throughout the world. CMS bases its potential on a social and human reading of “cooking methods” that inmates generate with the minimal resources existing in their environment.

It was conceived in 2009 with a group of inmates of an Italian maximum security penitentiery and developed with prisoners of differents penal institutions, focusing on the culinary methods that apply the limited available resources found within prison cells. Phase 1 was developed in Italy while phase 2 is currently being developed in Spain.
