OCDChinatown is a clubhouse for performance, sound, word, film, fashion, and most of all kunst. It is a set, a screen, an informal testing ground for new work; it’s a house of prayer, a museum, a workshop. It is a space for new and unorthodox artists, located in a Chinatown mall. OCDChinatown was launched earlier this year, and collaborations so far have included Lord of Beef, Eckhaus Latta, and Michel Auder.
