My new friend Gerry Bibby is in town for a few weeks from Germany. He is a part of an art collective called Basso Berlin and they have come to New York City to set up shop, make art, meet people, and throw parties for a week. Here are some photos of the the night I was out with Sean and Randa.
here is some more info about this art collective:
basso is a semi-public studio space in kreuzberg, a district of berlin.
it quietly contributes to the cultural life of the neighbourhood in which it is situated. many musicians played in basso including new york's baby dee and scott matthew, the wednesday film screenings are very popular since they started three years ago, some fabulous people have celebrated their birthdays there. the events always have a private character and are free of charge. apart from being a creative hangout, basso also publishes basso magazin and just started a series of editions.
the idea behind basso broadway is to spend some time with the basso crew in new york city and share time and ideas with people in this different context. the headquarters studio at downtown broadway is a perfect frame for the basso team to construct a space of their own for a week, in and through which they can communicate, create and celebrate.
basso broadway will run from january 29 to february 3, open daily from 2pm to late. during the afternoons, we work and prepare the evenings, while our doors stay open for the ones who want to drop by and hang out with us. in the evenings, we present different events, which you can see on our program.
basso broadway is at
385 broadway #2f (between walker and white streets)
new york, ny 10013.
