Plantoon Kunsthalle @ Seoul

A new arrival in the creative scene of Korea, PLATOON KUNSTHALLE, has become a space for subculture in Asia. Cultural movements beneath the radar is what it represents and supports through exhibitions, movie nights, concerts and multimedia performances, workshops and discussion panels, all concerning street art, graphic design, fashion, video art, programming, music, club culture, political activism and other expressions of subculture.

PLATOON KUNSTHALLE is built of 28 stacked iso cargo containers, as icons of a flexible architecture in a globalized culture, forming a unique construction that can be rebuilt anywhere else any time. Moreover, the choice of area is absolutely not a matter of luck. Cheongdam district, also known as “Fashion and Art Street” or “Yuppie Street” is the hottest place for the upcoming upper class art lovers, with department stores, design houses, commercial galleries and luxury restaurants, a confrontation of subculture that creates a tension and interaction between the two worlds.
