Addressing the problem of people owning too many things, Mediamatic is organizing their new exhibition ‘Ruilen’ around the concept of swapping . Everything you no longer use can be swapped for something you actually are in need of. Simply bring your goods to the Mediamatic Fabriek and swap. Not only physical things are up for swapping, but also knowledge and services.
For those who can’t make it to the venue, Mediamatic has also set up an online marketplace. You can check that out here.
For those skeptical about swapping, take a look at Kyle MacDonald who famously swapped a red paperclip for a house. It took him only 14 trades!
Ruilen at Mediamatic Fabriek, from October 20th until January 6th.
