Seja Marginal, Seja Herói (Be Marginal, Be a Hero) parts 1-5
Part 4: Platoniq, 20 April - 13 May
During 2007 Wysing re-located to central Cambridge, converting a discused car showroom in the Romsey area into a temporary gallery and project space. We invited five international artists' collectives to be resident in a programme that celebrated the marginal. The fourth collective to occupy the space were Platoniq (Spain).
Platoniq’s contribution to Seja Marginal, Seja Herói provided a context for their new commission Blockbooster, which was part of the Enter_ festival of art and technology, which Wysing was involved in organising.
As well as a more formal exhibition they turned the space into an alternative learning centre, staging skills swaps and talks on knowledge exchange, including creative commons and open-source software. Platoniq used the space as their HQ from where they web streamed all events and activity.
