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.
