DoBeDo contributor Sean Vegezzi is releasing a booklet, ‘JOEY’ this weekend in New York City.
“Joey”, an affectionate colloquialism naming a stereotype of New York City’s builders, was the inspiration for a reading that took place in December 2014 (eighty feet under Midtown Manhattan) inside of New York City Transit System’s 7 Line Extension Project.
This event, video document, and compilation of poems, essays, and songs are part of an ongoing celebration of those who construct and labor over the spaces we move through and around – not the architects, designers or developers – but the Joeys.
‘JOEY’ is released on Saturday 12th December 2015 outside of 34th Street – Hudson Yards 7 Train Station.

DoBeDo contributor Dick Jewell is in conversation with curator David Campany at the ICA London on December 2nd 2015, marking the launch of his new publication ‘four thousand threads‘ (2015).
Examining the phenomena of online photo sharing, the book amasses a vast archive of photographs covering various ‘threads’, from planking to bombing and animal selfies. Much like the artist’s 1978 book Found Photos, this meticulously edited work reflects the artist’s long-term interests in communal behaviour and societal shifts.
Tickets are available from the ICA.
Jewell’s book, ‘four thousand threads’ is available to buy here.
