The future demands not just our expertly honed skills in watching, but also understanding. From ancient puppets to prehistoric legends, education and entertainment have been intertwined. The material presented by DIS today is the result of a change in attitude towards the present and aims to meet the demands of contemporary social, political, and economic complexity at eye level.
DIS (est. 2010) is a New York-based collective composed of Lauren Boyle, Solomon Chase, Marco Roso, and David Toro. In 2018 the collective transitioned platforms from an online magazine, dismagazine.com, to a video streaming edutainment platform, dis.art, narrowing in on the future of education and entertainment.
Meet the Makers is a program of artists talks and performative lectures based on a series that originated at The New York Public Library, which will take place select Thursdays at 7PM. Meet the Makers brings together today’s media makers, theorists, scholars, and artists to promote visual arts literacy and explore the ways we engage with emergent media and new technologies.
