Getting Ready for the 11th Havana Bienal!
Book and Wheel Works is working on
SANcafé with our collaborator, Lauren Elder
SANcafé includes a communal pop up café, a Map/Book and a digital Library.
We’re working on the artwork the for San Agustín Farm Map/Guide to Flavors and in Spanish: Mapa de Cultivos y Manual de Sabores de San Agustín for the 11th Havana Bienal, which opens May 11, 2012 in Cuba. Our part of the SANcafé project is a map that folds into a book and a digital library on urban agriculture. It’s another “edge of a big city project!” And more neighborhood mapping, bookmaking and another library collaboration.
SANcafé is one project developed for MAC/SAN (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de San Agustín) a project of LASA (Laboratorio Artístico de San Agustín), an organization in San Agustín, a neighborhood at the outside southwest edge of Havana. San Agustín is a working class neighborhood of 37,000 people. In the past the neighborhood was the home of many of members of Fulgencio Batista’s regime and before that the site of extensive mango groves.
Here’s a peek at the artwork for the San Agustín Farm Map/Guide to Flavors–lots of combining of images and text to come!
