|[Nettime-nl] voor n5m4 bezoekers: doe mee aan swap meet|
CLAIM YOUR BLANKET WHILE SUPPLIES LAST: SWAP MEET For the Next 5 Minutes 4, De Geuzen is organizing a swap meet where tactical traditions, such as buttons, flyers, T-shirts, pie throwing, stencils and stickers can be displayed and generally talked about. For the event we are designing around 25 blankets that will operate as a tactical interface. Made to be viewed vertically as a banner, or horizontally as a surface, or from above as a shelter, our blankets are a kind of nomadic, carry-all, platform for attending participants. For the first days of the conference the blankets will circulate both inside and outside various venues of the Next 5 Minutes. Owners will quite literally unfold them and squat or occupy any space they see fit to air their wares and promote their cause. At a time and location to be announced, the blankets and their owners will converge in a single place for a turbo exchange of tactical traditions. Audiences/participants will be able to peruse a variety of goods on view or participate in a series of "show and tell"/how-to lessons held at the same location. The space will be a cross between a junk sale and a DIY center where computers converge with ironing boards and the dilettante is valued as the expert. In preparation for the Swap Meet we have set-up a weblog for people to get to know each other and exchange ideas, resources, and know-how in advance of the event. We will also use the site for documentation and hopefully continue the debate around tactical traditions long after the event is over. see: http://www.geuzen.org/swap/ If you want to register for a blanket and/or you would like to post on the blog please send your name and email address to: email@example.com ______________________________________________________ * Verspreid via nettime-nl.
