Lower East

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 exhibitions, events, dinners and a lot more.

dOCUMENTA (13) – 2

August 23, 2012

Second post from Lower East’s Documenta (13). Study for Strings, a atmospheric sound installation by the artist Susan Philipsz, based on Pavel Haas’ Study for Strings from 1943. At the end of platform 13 at the former Hauptbahnhof, which is today only in marginal use, we listened quietly to the artist’s work mixing up with the railway noise in the hot sun. At the very same place three major transports deported Jewish families to concentration camps during World War 2.
