Collecting the City: Toko Mokum
Toko Mokum is an interactive exhibition about tokos and Indische food culture. The exhibition is based on stories and objects from all over Amsterdam. Immediately upon entering the exhibition, you get a comprehensive impression in smell, image and sound of the history of tokos (shops with Asian products) and warungs (small Indonesian eateries) in the Netherlands and the further development of their form and function in the current time.
Collecting the City
Collecting the City is an exhibition series in which the Amsterdam Museum 'collects' and presents the vibrant city of Amsterdam together with various communities and organisations. Each edition consists of several smaller presentations that together form one exhibition. This 3rd edition is a small display titled Toko Mokum about the disappearance of the traditional Asian tokos from Amsterdam.
Disappearance and future of iconic tokos
Riboet Verhalenkunst, a collective of artists with Indische and Moluccan roots, is seeing more traditional Asian stores disappear. In the small exhibition, they tell the stories of several iconic tokos and show how new generations translate the toko feeling into our times.
Many families with a background in the former colony of the Dutch East Indies circulate cookbooks in which the Indonesian food culture is passed on. It contains the recipes of dishes originating in various Indonesian cuisines and have been adapted to European tastes here and there.
