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) – 3

September 10, 2012

It’s closing time. dOCUMENTA (13) are closing the doors for the exhibition in Kassel, Germany on September 16. Be there – or you will have to wait until 2017 for the next documenta. If you manage to go there this week, you just HAVE TO see the William Kentridge installation ‘The Refusal of Time’.

Five films are projected on the walls of an industrial space at the train station. A large wooden “breathing machine“ with moving parts are placed in the center of the room. The sounds of speaking and music are transmitted through silver megaphones, one at each corner, each with a different soundtrack.

The room was magic! We would so much like to experience it again.
