10. Democracy Lab at Brooklyn Library
An inflatable, semi-transparent bubble pavilion will bring Democracy Lab to the Soldiers and Sailors Arch at Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza in front of the Brooklyn Library from June 11th to 17th. There will be 50 public programs “focused on civic engagement, social justice, public space, utopia and democracy—including daily readings of The New York Times moderated by artists and community members, chair-making workshops, artist-led walks, a concert series, literary cabarets and debates, and presentations on green architecture.”,
The inflatable pavilion, called the Spacebuster, is designed by raumlaborberlin, and was previously seen in New York at the Ideas City festival, under the Manhattan Bridge archway from the Dumbo Improvement District, and at the Hester Street Fair. This version will be presented by Brooklyn Public Library in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance, raumlaborberlin, Storefront for Art & Architecture, and visitBerlin.
