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.

Venice Art Biennale 2015; A day in Arsenale

November 22, 2015

Impressions from our last day at the Biennale Arte in Venice. This time we spend the day at Arsenale, where we checked out the big common exhibition; “All the World’s Futures“ and the rest of the national pavilions.

Not our best day at the biennale, but we found of course splendid and interesting exhibitions and pieces of art; the always interesting William Kentridge, Georg Baselitz‘s series of eight new large-scale paintings titled Fällt von der Wand nicht (Doesn’t Fall From the Wall), the amazing The Phoenix by Xu Bing, Ibrahim Mahama, who created for the biennale a 300 meter-long, 3,000 kg patchwork installation entirely made of old jute sacks, titled Out of Bounds, the very fine Tuvalu National Pavilion, and Liisa Roberts’ photographs of elderly Russian workers, once models for heroic Soviet art.

Over and out from Venice. Ready for new adventures!
