Red Light for Red Blood

About the place?

Taroudant (Tachelhit: Tarudant, ⵜⴰⵔⵓⴷⴰⵏⵜ; Arabic: تارودانت, tārūdānt, [taːruːdaːnt]) is a city in the Sous Valley in south eastern Morocco. It is situated east of Agadir on the road to Ouarzazate and the Sahara desert and south of Marrakesh. The town is known as the "Grandmother of Marrakech" because it looks like a smaller Marrakech with its surrounding ramparts. In the sixteenth century, the Saadi dynasty briefly used Taroudant as a capital before it moved its royal seat onwards to Marrakesh. Today, the city has the feel of a small fortified market town on a caravan route. (Wikipedia)

About the project?

People consume about 350 million tons of meat a year, says But they neither consume this meat in the same way, nor how they get their meat, or probably how it gets to them, is similar. Instead, eating meat is culturally connoted – and this is what this project is about. With The Art of Meat, Philip checks on the aesthetics and different cultural practices in meat production.
