As the clock fearlessly ticks towards the opening (August 31st 2010), the etoy.CREW in Kwangju/South Korea endeavours to complete the mad task of putting up a show including all major artworks of etoy since 1994.

The SARCOPHAGUS just got electronic impulse!
we just got confirmation for our big show with platoon in gwangju/korea. it will take place during the gwangju biennale (INFO: http://www.art-magazin.de/newsticker/?news_id=4462 )sept/oct 2010.
platoon is currently setting up their second kunsthalle in asia (36 containers! the bastards are growing like hell!). for all of you who still dont know the project -> go and check it out: http://www.kunsthalle.com/
tom met with the ministery of culture in korea yesterday: they greenlighted the concept for a big etoy.SOLOSHOW.
happynesss and excitement: the platoon guys are perfect for such a venture because they understand etoy and its values/twists well, they are 100% container based, their approach is unconventional and (!) working with them is great fun* as we saw in berlin!
anyway... we are now working full speed on the implementation a 360° etoy.SHOW including the sarcophagus, tamatar, pachinko, daycare, etoy.SHARED-HISTORY etc. yes: we will move to korea ;-)
in this sense: it's a good moment to re-evaluate our share price.
