20:00 to 23:00
location: V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam

V2_ presented the projects of the Barcelona artists’ collective Platoniq during the Wereld van Witte de With festival. Platoniq, whose slogan is Bring the Internet to the streets, seeks to publicize online productions based on independent distribution methods. Platoniq took to the streets to disseminate content with Burn Station, a mobile online installation using a four-computer local network:

Come by with some blank CDs and record songs you like from the database.
You can also bring your own compositions for others to copy.

In this way, people can hear work that would never find a commercial sales channel.

With Burn Station, Platoniq bridges the physical space of the city with the world of media through the exchanging of files and the building of personal contacts. The project aims to promote the right to free culture and to copyright alternatives being developed on the Internet thanks to the influence of open-source/free software on digital information.

Co-produced by Wereld van Witte de With.
