PLATOON launch

After the wedding I trekked from Balsan to Cheongdam to the launch of PLATOON space.

"PLATOON KUNSTHALLE is set up in seoul as a space for subculture in asia. its programmatic orientation towards cultural movements beneath the radar creates a dynamic space where new ideas are born and presented.

the platoon europe headquarters in berlin was established in 2000. it runs diverse culture and communication projects in cooperation with an international community of 3,500 creatives from all different professions.

PLATOON KUNSTHALLE is not about entertainment. the program will provide a communication platform for anybody interested in subcultural creative fields like street art, graphic design, fashion, video art, programming, music, club culture, political activism etc.

PLATOON KUNSTHALLE is built of 28 iso cargo containers. as icons of a flexible architecture in a globalized culture, the stacked containers form a unique construction that can be rebuilt anywhere else any time.

as PLATOON KUNSTHALLE is located in the cheongdam area the confrontation of subculture with the close-by design houses, commercial galleries and luxury brand stores creates a tension and interaction between the two worlds."

The space is fantastically amazing and apart from the "doof doof" music* the whole night was awesome - especially as I had the most beautiful dates - Kayla and Jade. ^^
Kayla makes the most beautiful feathered headbands (one of which I am a proud owner) and I am so happy she got some much deserved attention from Seoul fashionistas.
*I've come to realise that I'm not going to hear the music I love to dance to for a while - cos it's not really happening in Korea.
