DIS is a New York based collective, composed of Lauren Boyle, Solomon Chase, Marco Roso, and David Toro. DIS is the curatorial team of the 9th Berlin Biennale (June 4 until September 18, 2016). The cultural interventions of DIS are manifest across a range of media and platforms, from site-specific museum and gallery exhibitions such as CO-WORKERS – Network as Artist (2015, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris), Ocean of Images: New Photography 2015 (The Museum of Modern Art, New York, US), DIS Image Studio (2013, The Suzanne Geiss Company, New York, US), ProBio at EXPO 1: New York (2013, MoMA PS1, New York, US) or Dressing the Screen for the British Council (2012, UCCA, Beijing) to ongoing online projects which most notably include DIS Magazine, a virtual platform that examines art, fashion, music, and culture, constructing and supporting new creative practices. Recent ventures include DISimages, 2013, a fully operational stock photography agency that enlists artists to produce images available for private and commercial use, and DISown, a retail venture aimed at expanding creative economies. Across its various endeavors, DIS explores the tension between popular culture and institutional critique, while facilitating projects for the most public and democratic of all forums—the Internet.
