Performance, Music and Installation

Join an evening of sharing and experimentation within a new resource centre for spatial justice and land reform being set up by multi-disciplinary design collective Assemble in the former home of artist and architect Annetta Pedretti. There will be music, performances, presentations by residents, cooking, craft and high drama in the house. The house will also re-stage a play originally written by Annetta herself in the 70s, that explores observations made around the local area as well as in Whitechapel Gallery itself.

About: Assemble

Assemble is a multi-disciplinary collective working across architecture, design and art, who were the winner of the Turner Prize in 2015. 

Founded in 2010 to undertake a single self-built project, Assemble has since delivered a diverse and award-winning body of work, whilst retaining a democratic and co-operative working method that enables built, social and research-based work at a variety of scales, both making things and making things happen.
