During the ‘Residency for the End of Time’ in Coulanges (France) in August 2019, organized by the Rotterdam art collective “Woodstone Kugelblitz”, PXC has been assigned a location by this collective to renovate and make it representable as a pop-up platform for participating artists and other creatives during the residency that year and for years to come… In addition, this pop-up platform ‘Bieute’ will be extended to various locations in the coming years.
It will be an international meeting place for creatives and residents from the surrounding area. Together they will playfully and creatively investigate how major environmental problems affect the ‘small’ rural / urban life and what the possible scenarios of impact and reaction are.

The non-profit foundation Plus-X-Creative was founded in 2015 by three creatives from the Netherlands: J. Koolen (city council, banjo musician, Rotterdam), H. Kwee (photographer, Amsterdam) and X. Gottenkieny (musician & artist Rotterdam). They met during cultural events and shared the passion to perform and to spread music and art. With this foundation their main aim was to play an active and supporting role in building a platform for creative empowerment.
These are exciting but also challenging times for the creative entrepreneur. Apart from trying to keep up with the fast changing world of technology, we’ve seen the emergence of necessary initiatives such as the ‘Platform for freelance musicians’ and the ‘Fair Practice Code’. Inspired by these positive movements, we want to help stimulate the emancipation of the artist, musician, dancer, performer and many other creatives.. .
We focus on cross-border projects / platforms where different artists and media come together. We seek collaboration with organizations that work with groundbreaking (‘realtime’) software technology.. We invite musicians and artists to explore the possibilities of these platforms and to what extent it enables musicians in developing their professional practice. We challenge artists to experiment and create new work at an accessible level with innovative technology.. Now and in the future, we will be able to reach more places where music and art are less obvious.
