Lower East Lab

it’s the blog

This is the blog for lower east & lower east lab. A mix of stuff from our design & communication world (things we do, things we have done, and things we experience and get inspired from) and news from our lab – where all kind of actions and experiments can happen – that be workshops, creative meetings, urban safaris (with focus on start up, architecture, design or food), and events, dinners and a lot more.

dOCUMENTA (13) – 4

September 12, 2012

We rush in to bring the last post from dOCUMENTA (13). We spend some good hours just being, looking, listening and exploring this very cool project:

12 Ballads for the Huguenot House
: (text from the documenta webpage) “In collaboration with a team of development workers-in-training from Chicago and from Kassel, Theaster Gates is restoring and reactivating the historic Huguenot House in Kassel. Once the restoration is completed, the house will be turned into a meeting place and location of varied performative and social events. Part of these events, The Black Monks of Mississippi, an ensemble of Chicago-based musicians, give multiple performances throughout the days and the evenings of the opening week of the exhibition. The Black Monks of Mississippi has performed with Theaster Gates over the years, calling on the rich jazz, blues, soul, and gospel traditions of the US.“
