About the program
In 2015 a group of international creative practitioners members of the Fictional Collective, Raphael Coutin, Corradino Garofalo, Joan Vellve Rafecas, together with Gabriela Baka and Lorenzo Gerbi from graphic studio Protocoolers join the collaborative project of Plug in City, Eindhoven. The project that developed from this common initiative is The ‘Vertical Gallery” (VG), an exhibition space and workspace for a diversity of creative interventions, located in Strijp-S area. Particularly, VG presents site-specific works that engage with the Plug-In-City (PIC) community and philosophy. The work developed in VG leave a trace within Plug-In-city. This trace can be physical outcomes, collaborations with the pluggers or immaterial value to add to Plug-In-City concept.
VERTICAL GALLERY (VG) together with ECONOMIA FESTIVAL (organized by BALTAN LABORATORIES) are launching a call for residency to produce an artwork in the context of PLUG-IN-CITY. The resident artist / designer is expected to build the artwork according at least to one of the 5 topics of Economia (Economy as a GAME, as EVOLUTION, as a FICTION, as a MARKET, as MAGIC), by engaging with the circular economy model of Plug-in-City. The selected project will be exhibited during the Economia Festival (20-22 January 2017).
The resident artist / designer will receive a 2000 € BUDGET (1250 € artist fee + 750 € materials budget), a WORKING SPACE, 2 VENUES to exhibit (DDW @ Plug-in-City / 22-30 October 2016 and and Economia Festival @ Natlab, 20-22 January 2017).

Vertical Gallery (VG) is an exhibition space and workspace for artists, designers and creatives, located in Strijp-S area. Particularly, VG presents site-specific works that engage with the Plug-In-City (PIC) community and philosophy. The unconventional volume of the VG stimulates participants to create work that would suit the space rather than simply being showcased in it. Indeed the VG will function more as a window, highlighting also the process of the creatives involved. The work developed in VG has to leave a trace within Plug-In-city. This trace can be physical outcomes, collaborations with the pluggers or immaterial value to add to Plug-In-City concept.
