Storefront IS Dominican Republic
June 25 – June 30, 2013
Storefront International Series: Dominican Republic (Storefront IS DR), organized in collaboration with Laboratorio Dominicano de Arquitectura (LAD), was a six-day series of events which took place in contested sites across the country while addressing the most pressing issues in the construction of public life in the region. Local experts, in conversation with global experts from different fields, presented and discussed their ideas and observations on various sites throughout country in order to articulate some of the most relevant questions of the cultural and physical landscapes in the Dominican Republic today. Going beyond social, disciplinary or ideological boundaries, Storefront IS DR aimed to break established lines of division to produce spaces of collective thought, reflection and ultimately, action.
