Rise & Shine

4 till 8 December 2015

Rise & Shine, is a performative newsroom disseminating information about projects by Dutch architects, urbanists, designers and academics on display at UABB.

Design Displacement Group will operate as ‘live reporters’ in a production unit, working on interviews, breaking news stories and image making. Everything will be live-streamed as a nonlinear documentary and broadcasted online.

Rise & Shine aims to manifest and mediate the cultural capital present in Shenzhen. The Dutch initiatives differ in scale and circles of influence yet have an inquisitive state of mind and a knack for optimization in common. This is expressed through small-scale, often temporary interventions, the reassessment of resources and local production. Typical for these design and research attitudes are co-creation and commoning, craftsmanship through technology and the ‘dematerialization’ of design into smart strategies.

The Dutch participants are:

AP + E (Architecture Practice + Experimentation) * Iwan Baan * Crimson Architectural Historians * Droog Design (Mark van der Net, Jan Rothuizen, Ester van der Wiel, Imme van der Haak, Fanny Hofstra and Design Academy Eindhoven) * INTI (International New Town Institute) * Land + CC (Land + Civilisation Compositions) * Rezone * Rob Voerman * Studio Makkink & Bey * SuperUse Studios

Rise & Shine is hosted by Het Nieuwe Instituut and The Consulate General of the Netherlands in Guangzhou, and is developed by Bureau Europa and Design Displacement Group.
