CLAIM YOUR BLANKET WHILE SUPPLIES LAST:
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
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.
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:
