The Seoul outpost of a Berlin-based cultural collective, this place is hard to miss, being a gigantic cube formed out of standard cargo containers. Inside it’s an anarchic blend of restaurant, bar, and exhibition space, with scattered geometric furnishings, collapsible walls, and sliding panels that can be adorned or reconvened in any number of ways.
Exactly what it will look like or what will be taking place on any given visit is hard to say, but given the facility’s celebration of subculture, it’s bound to be interesting.
Regular events include alcohol-fueled flea markets and club nights, while past exhibitions have included work from U.S. street artists, Japanese animators, and hip-hop documentary filmmakers.
