DIS Magazine invites you to visit us at DIS HQ, our temporary headquarters located at Invisible-Exports gallery in the New York’s Lower East Side.
DIS has commissioned artist Lizzie Fitch to design our idealized office world, a lifestyle hybrid of corporate culture, fitness, and technology. The entire office will be under 24-hour surveillance, which will be presented on a flat screen in the window and streamed online.
This event and project space will give DIS a physical presence and allow us to engage with the community directly as a kind of cultural laboratory, hangout, and refuge. Like the online platform we’ve built, this space will be a platform for the production and dissemination of (new) content with a cross-disciplinary approach and a focus on e(-)merging fields. With weekly events in the form of lectures, workshops, and performances, it will be a dynamic social space where people (and ideas) show up to run into each other.
DIS HQ will grow throughout its duration, as the DIS “hub” continues to call for the creation of work for the magazine as well as generate the immaterial work of discourse. This open office setting will also allow for the “behind the scenes” daily tasks of our work to be laid bare and taken into consideration as work of art(istic) production in its own right. Passersby, at both the office’s physical and virtual locations, will be able to interact with, disturb, and alter the DIS HQ presence using various mobile and internet applications.
DIS HQ will be live and on display throughout August 2011 at Invisible-Exports.
