This year Work Hard! Play Hard! happens in a distributed manner: in order to be together, we do not always need to be present in one physical space. In the time of pandemic, border closures and restrained mobility, it would have been the most obvious decision to cancel the event. The working group proposes to test — test test test — the possibilities of dispersed collectivity and intimacy, where touches, connections, solidarity can happen at a distance: in chat rooms, scores and voice messages.

Work Hard! Play Hard! tests the changing possibilities of being together, working and relaxing together, not attempting to substitute collectivity with draining online activity and to reproduce the virtual double-gangers of our actions and experience, but rather trying to re-assemble and reconfigure digital tools and spaces. We question the usual frame of the event and the channels of its transmission, relying on underwater communication between the lines of the schedule, on the co-presence of practices, on the exchange of instructions.

For this, we use a system of chats and sound channels — of attraction, care, sharing and seduction; as a tool for self-organization, where you can find feeds with different discussions.

This year, WHPH suggests to experiment with intimate and collective infrastructures and interfaces, to find ourselves in time gaps and failures, to become friends with uncertainty and contingency. Our program was formed through a series of letters sent from the future. Each of them invited to join one of the drifting slots, which opened for a certain period of time.

 

underwater slot  â°  

This slot is overflowing with submarine current. Through it bodies swaying in the surface are seen. The current is warm. It is mixing with surface waters and tingles the skin with hot sprays ﻩﻩﻩ

This is a call to play with us in an intimate infrastructure and apply for the ROLE / CARE PRACTICES / MISSIONS / UNDERWATER, which will accompany us for one week.

We would like to reveal the synthesis of affect, to make sensual adventure accomplices out of us, floating in the computational waters, a distributed care cooperative.

You can claim the role of “being yourself” or become someone with a shifted identity, with shifted edges of your subjectivity. How much you shift your borders is up to you.

Roles thematise the space between events in the schedule grid. They happen somewhere between the lines when you glance at the color fill of the website. They are a hidden engine of events. We would like to think about physical distance and social intimacy. About the fragile infrastructure that tingles the skin with hot sprays ﻩﻩﻩ ﻩﻩﻩ

To do this, you are invited to the most secret and important ROLECARE PRACTICESMISSIONSUNDERWATER (several can be chosen):

~ those who rise to the surface of the water with caution ~ who feel not-like-fish-in-water among large groups of people and need a supporting fin ~

~ those who feel the power of the waves in themselves and the witching power to help~to mediate~to support the drowning people ~ who feel the energy of collectivity and can become an active fellow ready to be there for others.

~ those who value the intimacy of random connections, who want to dive right into the network of strangers ~ who value temporary spontaneous intimate algorithmic zones.

~ those who want to offer a different underwater role ~ (please specify your role when filling out the form, we will take it into account while designing our watery realm of relations).

> you can dive into this slot via the link ——> here

> this form will close on 22/06/20 at 23:59:59 Minsk time ⏰  

Do not tell anyone about your ~ role / practice of caring / mission / underwater / role ~ neither now nor during the week. How much you want to get it alive / activate / fit in / dive is up to you. Before the week, we will create an intimate infrastructure, let you know how to use it, and connect you according to your roles, (non-)motivation and contingency.

 

slot of uncertainties  â°  

Dear she-friend, he-friend, they-friends,

We look at the petals of the present, which is in dormancy. In a state of uncertaintу, adaptive adjustments, a state of “reduced functional activity of living organisms, due to environmental conditions, while maintaining their high vitality.”

Today is JanuaryFebruaryMarchAprilMayJuneJulyAugustSeptemberOctoberNovemberDecember 01020304050607080910111213141516171819202122232425262728293031 and you are reading an invitation letter into the slot of an extended present.

Machines, mechanisms, algorithms of apprehension, formulations glide along the “frames” of attention which not only frame, but also support.

Today is JanuaryFebruaryMarchAprilMayJuneJulyAugustSeptemberOctoberNovemberDecember 01020304050607080910111213141516171819202122232425262728293031 and we do not know how the situation will unfold in the future. This unknown has two overlapping dimensions — unknown of particularities and unknown of methods/tools they can be grasped with.

We invite you to join the game with unknown unknowns. To try to grab the joy from this situation. Let the game be called “how far everything can go.”

This slot is a collective mapping of uncertainties. Risk, volatility, blur, memory loss, flux, chaos, dance of statistical errors, perplexity from the invasion of all of the above into your locality.

With this letter, we suggest you make yourself comfortable in contradictions. Do not cancel or affirm one form of event. To be entirely not there and not here — in both places simultaneously and alternately.

We welcome:
~ not specific fantasms, but ways to generate them;
~ discussion of asynchrony, which go to asynchronous actions;
~ search for a fork, where everything went as it went ✸ ✸ ✸ from this fork-slingshot, the possibilities to beat the glass ceilings of the imagination are revealed;
~ present as coherenceconjunctionrupture.

Everything will be resolved by a round dance of uncertainty on one of the days of WHPH. Remember that your part of the round dance should be compact in order to leave space for other variants of blurred temporalities.

* A round dance of uncertainties will condense on one of the days of the WHPH week 22—28 June 2020, or might go beyond its limits.

 

slot test test test  â°  

Dears,

On the way back in our letters we pass by:

Push notifications, red and green lines on the yandex map, voice assistants, traffic lights — which are all the time “online” — with an indicator of the number of cars, self-synchronizing ships in the same world of waters, surveillance cameras with a common “host”.

They lead us into the tunnels of new sensitivity. A machine of digital sensitivity where the sensitivity does not always belong to us.

The long-awaited torrent file that no one is distributing right now. A hot spot on an airplane designed just for two. An intimate alliance of interfaces moving in space at a speed of 950 km/h. Our machines in flight touch each other with tentacles of protocols.

We invite you to burrow holes in seemingly stable “online” frames, to occupy sensors that are (non)adherent to a body, to go off the roads that policies for using tools are offering, to thematize an algorithmically arranged distributed sensitivity, where the result is not equal to the sum of the parts. We invite you to test your ENVIRONMENTSSETTINGSTRAJECTORIES through technologically warmed-up landscapes.

slot of broken temporality  â°  

Dear readers of the invitation to the slot of broken temporality,

You know, that something happens to time. It sparkles, overheats, leaks and disconnects. Alarm clocks are ticking according to their own calendars through a myriad of ringtones, redistributing the streams of conventional time, shared between us. Alarm clocks and other devices produce their chronopolitics — the way of living time through, of running wild and getting lost in time during the pandemic, of warning signs, deadlines and accelerated visions of the future. What happens if time gets back to its place? And where is its place in postsocialism? Not that scanty imposed geography of ruins and poverty, but as a global condition that defines living forms.

Susan Buck-Morss admits that the prefix post in post-Soviet marks the ontology of time in contrast to the ontology of collectivity implied in the Soviet. This ontology of time, anchored in the prefix post- implicates the lack of right to be contemporary, embeds the clear relations of domination and submission.

But what if this uncertainty, this moving backwards and the lack of utopic horizon is the very queerrrr time of postsocialism?

Following feminist scholars one can see postsocialism through queer temporality, where different types of relations with historical past and unexpected connections that resists normative — linear and teleological — concepts of time could be found. This temporality can confront “straight time”, by amassing various forms of life and non-synchronised subjectivities. To think the notion of queer time broadly, is to think it as a rupture of regular rhythms, as the time against reproduction, (non)shared utopia, manifestations of forgotten sci-fies, as the night.

BY THIS LETTER, WE INVITE YOU TO PROPOSE ACTIVITY, THAT IMPLIES FAILUREERRORRUPTURECONDENSATION OF POSTSOCIALIST TIME:

The timeslot should include time failures — time bombs, calls from the past, songs from SUMMER MIX 2027 — something that would question the stream of time, counting time backwards, attacking the future.

1 second — 1 year — 2032 — night

> the form for your proposals is ——>here

> this form will close on 03.06.20 at 9.30pm Minsk time ⏰

slot of flickering co/presence  â°  

dear readers of the invitation to the slot of flickering co/presence,

while we are writing this text, we imagine how your gazes travel along the lines, catching up, surpassing, uniting.

we imagine how you imagine this invitation, the choreography of our visions, which transcends the body, room, house, neighbourhood, borders.

we imagine what will happen in late June, mid-June, early June, mid-May, late April, tomorrow morning, in 2 hours, yesterday.

we get up, we take a breath, pull the shoulder blades together, our calf muscles are relaxed, we make a circular motion with our right arm and start moving, we imagine that our spine is a fountain; it pulls the whole body along ↑

we would love this to be a letter and an impulse,

a letter as a hail

hey, yo, oh, ouch, hello, name, touch of a shoulder, call, flashing of a screen,

—— inertia of the unfolding of joint experiences <—–>–<—— ,—>

BY THIS LETTER, WE CALL YOU TO SHARE WITH EACH OTHER INSTRUCTIONSSCENARIOSEXERCISESSCORESALGORITHMS:

’ ~ .. being simultaneous, random, regular, coordinated,

21.06.2020

Dears,

Tomorrow we had the same dream:

We know what will happen today, but don’t know yet what happened yesterday. We got a job as time players, where we try to grasp distributed collectivity by the tail, like a cat.

But how not to stumble upon our own tail and not to mislead ourselves? Our task is not to start reproducing online-double-gangers of our activity and experience, but rather to dive, with a time difference, into the nourishing pool of dispersed collectivities, inventing forms of co-presence, co-liveliness, co-stratifying, co-becoming and multitudes of co-.

We would like to construct and fill in with you one of the support structures, one of the calendars, one of the scenarios of the present. To extend the idea of temporality – the social organization of time, and infrastructures – caring and tyrannical carcasses. Deformation of time (alienation, dislodging, overlapping, theft) and fragmentation of space (thickening, control, passages making) formulate the grid of the abductive invitation by WHPH working group. Abductive reasoning, unlike other cognitive procedures, offers sensitivity to incorporate new variables and vague situations simultaneously to development of hypotheses, visions and practices.

Today is June 21, the day before WHPH begins.

Till the next letter,
your WHPH working group

 

⋪ infrastructure ⋫

We suspend how exactly WHPH will happen this year and invite you to join this abductive speculation. We will correspond with you throughout 2 months, together defining what will happen from June 22 to 28 2020. After this date, the time will overturn again.

The structure of the invitation this year is formed by drifting slots, which will open for a certain period of time. You can follow them through our letters. Maybe, you would respond to the opened slot-parameter, maybe, you would like to wait for the adjacent one and to play the lottery with time.

You can forward these letters to anyone, who might be interested, but we kindly ask you not to publish them to social networks.

Work Hard! Play Hard! is a self-organized initiative. Unfortunately we do not have the budget to provide financial assistance to participants, but we try our best to ensure all the desired conditions for your non/work and to set up a supporting infrastructure.

atom. walking next to each other / audio

We are now walking next to each other, each of us recording this journey for two of you. Both of you will be far, yet you will be able to walk this route together, listening to it at the same time, hearing the footsteps of a stranger next to you, walking in between the real and the imaginary. Who knows, at the end of the walk you might want to have a talk with each other.

To take part please fill in the google form and we will find you a walking partner.

Link to registration.

to take part you would need a smartphone with the WhatsApp application installed, internet access and headphones. you can be anywhere, but it should allow you to listen to the soundtrack.

Lika Kareva. Pokemon D / counter detective game

We invite you to play the counter-detective game Pokemon-D, in which participants who are deprived of real names are divided into teams, inside of which they must RECOGNIZE each other. Yes, there are no those who are hiding, no fugitives — there are only those who are desperate to reveal their identity. Which would be simple if they could communicate directly.

But they do not have such a possibility. Counter-detectives use the Pokemon Go game interface to communicate.

  1. Install Pokemon Go app to your phone. Create an account with a FAKE NAME/NICKNAME. Don’t connect it to your Facebook page!!

  2. After initial training, click on your avatar and go the FRIENDS section, then +ADD FRIEND. Send your friend code to game bot in Telegram @PokemonD_bot (still don’t connect to Facebook!).

  3. The friend feature in Pokemon Go allows gamers to send ONE GIFT per DAY to each other. Gifts contain postcards — PHOTOS AND NAMES OF REAL PLACES — that is the only personal information that can be transmitted through Pokemon Go.

  4. LET’S GO!!! The admin responds you with a list of 5 names of WHPH participants and 5 friend codes. Now your detective job is to IDENTIFY each other — connect PokeTrainers to WHPH participants. The only accessible information is the locations that they visit, which the GIFT system provides. To do your detective job you can use all external resources (Google, social networks etc) — there are no limitations (excluding asking your real friends what are their nicknames in the game of course ..).

  5. Look careful on the information about your visiting spots that you provide by GIFTS! The group of players forms a UNIT — you need to BE IDENTIFIED as well as DOING identification. The UNIT with the greatest identified number of participants wins.

  6. LET’S GO!! You have only time before the closing-game event on WHPH week to do the job.

The game takes ~ 30 minutes to install and 10 minutes every day.

+ technical requirements:

  • 2GB of RAM or more and the installed version of Android 4.4–7.0 + / iPhone 5s +
  • (Recommended :) Living in the city
  • Telegram & Pokemon Go apps

To START and get more information connect to GameBot in telegram app: @PokemonD_bot

Nikita Nechaev and Arina Nesterova. Fire state / Game

“Why not assume in this case, that thought is precisely that most qualitatively peak form in which is realized the accumulation and productive use of energy, emitted by the suns?

That is, this same link which as yet is lacking, in order for an actual big circle to be possible, and not a one-sided and irrevocable process of dispersal of matter and motion in intergalactic space?”

Instruction-game, made in the form of a script in Twine. Algorithms of movement executed in different contexts, are accompanied by audio. Instruction, script and a plot lives in a tension between the abstract and the concrete. Based on a method of ascension from the abstract to the concrete by Ilyenkov, we are offering the participant to move away / approach the objective and evaluate the role of the instruction as an ally or distracting interlocutor, explore the excesses of rational production, raptures of “techno-naturalistic isomorphism”.

Sergey Babkin. The Exquisite Corpse of Our Shared History / e-mail game

Temporalities happen to crystalize in histories, while histories are constantly revised. But when post- had not yet happened, it seemed that the source of the revisionism is concentrated enough to revise history in a centralized way, according to the logics of the bipolar world and party intrigues. In the condition of post- the total revisionism of our shared history that seemed so necessary:

  1. Turned out to be provided by a lot more agents than earlier, still not accountable to anyone or anything besides their own interests;
  2. Turned out to function according to the logic of (financial) markets and the speed of high-frequency trading;
  3. Found itself in a quantum state of simultaneous production of not-/semi-/still/despite-everything-connected narratives;
  4. Gained a new form of being public, that has a lot to do with functions of commenting and editing.

Even though an act of microrevisionism is produced after each time the button Send is clicked (either by an activist or by an employee of the Troll Factory), it seems that a central public territory of the History Revisionism appeared – the Wikipedia. It was created as a promise of a peer-review approach to the written knowledge but became a territory of the Battle of Corrections. This overlapping of corrections has something to do with the surrealist practices of juxtapositions, accumulations, doublings and searching for lower layers while looking at the upper ones. The game The Exquisite Corpse of Our Shared History is based on the game The Exquisite Corpse but uses found content and e-mails. The game should satisfy the desire for new historical revisionisms that are intrinsic to our dynamic subjectivities, power up the disintegration of micronarratives — through the anonymous collectivity of the chain of e-mails, provoke the fact-checking instincts in their interaction with a vice of trust to anything anonymous. What would motivate you in reinterpreting history: sense of justice? The claim to comply with the cause-effect principle? The urge to provoke people around you?

During the game you will receive an e-mail with a text of a Wikipedia article about a historical event you might be acquainted with. You can change one sentence in it, but don’t make it visible. Then you send the text to the next player who does the same. In the final, the results of a collective anonymous act of revisionism will be published online.

To take part in the game, please, fill in the form.

MAAILMANLOPPU postanatomy theater. “What is knocking in my box?” / play/art mediation / audio-channel in the collective chat

They are knocking in a box. They want your attention and we will give it to them in the format of art mediation of boxes.

In this project, it is interesting for us to test such a state as carelessness from ignorance and willingness to receive the most diverse, designating, re-designating, evaluating or re-evaluating/overestimating stuff. This practice gives the possibility to face a miracle: you can get something you did not know existed. Or, it’s something that didn’t exist before but here you are — you take it from the box

We made jewellery film with toys hat rattle in the box (originally they were made as decorations, but all of them were unfinished, because they are good as they are) . Labels are sewn to the images of toys in the Google document. We combined everything into art mediation. You will see screen with quick iMessenger. We do not use messenger app for communication but as a window / canvas / box where we place the text for art- mediation.

We want to turn everything upside down and shake it up!

The play/art meditation will be in Russian and English.

The authors claim that only modern theatrical practices can present the phenomenon (including scientific one) as a real experience. The group’s artistic practice is emergency mode, the image abandoning, preferring to implement literally to provoke the audience’s gaze/hearing without involving them.

Alex Anikina. Chrome Autoethnography / Screensharing / audio-channel in the collective chat

I feel burned out from the self-imposed (and fake) necessity to come up with wholesome, conceptual, academically valid projects. So I would like to try some amateur autoethnography instead — autoethnography of Google Chrome, saved pages in Facebook and other tools of digital forgetfulness. In the last 4 years while I was writing my PhD project I kept saving — and never opening again — various urls. I think now is a good time to open them. What will we see? I don’t know, but I’m curious. At the moment of writing this proposal, I still haven’t opened them, so I’m not even sure what exactly I’m proposing. I’m curious what I will consider worthy of public discussion or not. How secretive will I feel about sharing my ideas and interests? What was I interested in, in the first place? What consoled me? What upset me? What did I want to remember (and couldn’t)? What would Aby Warburg say about this? Or Marianne Hirsch? What gave me joy? What rooms did I enter and got scared? I would like to be scared again.

Will be held in Russian and English.

Ira Konyukhova and Daria Prydybailo

TransitoryWhite is a journal of overlapping, multi-voiced accounts documenting peripheral artistic productions. We aimed to create an intersectional platform for discussing decolonization, post-neoliberalism trauma and the possibility of dispersive views on the so-called post-communist territories. Since 2019, the platform has also operated in the trajectories of migrant and post-displacement discourse, expanding its activities from the geographical pole “East” to the global. In response to the growing nationalistic discourse, it is crucial for our investigation to represent artists and theorists with different identities and ideas for the future. In this way, TransitoryWhite emphasizes the productive interaction between different multitudes rather than dualities. TransitoryWhite understands whiteness as a metaphor for colonialism, or as a white, self-contained exhibition space where the hierarchy of discourses and images is prejudiced. Instead, we turn to the idea of White Noise; a signal or constant disturbance, something cacophonic, turbulent and restless which fluctuates and transforms our perspectives.

Choterina Freer. The DIY Mycologist / Live video performance / audio-channel in the collective chat

The performance will focus on a first person account of a woman who has an overwhelming and obsessive interest in Mycology (a branch of biology concerned with the study of fungi) and consciously decides to symbiotically merge into the wet rot fungi growing in her home. In mythology there are many tales of women turning into plants and trees; mainly not through choice and sometimes as a punishment. However the central character in the performance decides to merge with the fungi in her house through choice in order to become a part of the network of mycelium (the roots spreading from the fungi through the house). Her obsession with fungi has led to a desire for her to exist symbiotically with the organism – in this work she describes her fascination with the environmental and medicinal benefits of fungi, and why she has an intense need to become part of the fungal network. As the central character merges and metamorphoses into the organism she finds that she can control the growth of the mycelium through meditation and breathing patterns. The growth speed is shown through the timelapse video of slime mould that begins slowly and gradually accelerates as she reaches symbiotic bliss with the wet rot fungi which has spread into every section of the house.

Choterina Freer

I work mainly with video, which are material manipulations of our digital environment. I composite taken and found footage, CGI animations, and hand-drawn graphics to examine and define digital social realisms and futurities. My practice is often collaborative, and I have collaboratively developed several performances over recent years which examine feminist collectives and possible futures. I’m one of the founders of 0s+1s Collective; and I have been privileged to show my video and performance work with other members of the collective at WH!PH! In 2017 and 2019. Recent exhibitions include: Arte por los Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2020); The Tallinn Feminist Forum, Estonian Academy of Arts, Tallinn, Estonia (2019); Nina, K and Connie, WH!PH! Side Affects, Minsk, Belarus (2019); The Future was at her Fingertips: Digital ambivalence, Cyborging and Technofeminism, Södertälje Art Gallery, Sweden (2018;) Mozart’s Ghost, Gothenburg Art Museum, Sweden (2017-2018); The Legacy Complex, Casa Victor Hugo, Havana, Cuba and Gotland’s Art Museum, Visby, Sweden (both 2017); WH!PH!, Minsk Belarus (2017); Artists’ Moving Image Festival, Tramway, Glasgow, UK (2016); and The London Feminist Film Festival, Rio Cinema, London, UK (2016). I have a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and an MFA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, University of London.

Patrick Riechert and Elena Vogman. Scenes of Extimacy / video and discussion / video conference / audio-channel in the collective chat

This exercise poses the question of intimacy from the perspective of the machinic. Coming back to Guattari and Deleuze’s notion of machines, we aim at excavating one of its most recurrent and striking qualities: desire. Emerging from the psychiatric context—e.g. the clinic of La Borde—these desiring-machines open a plane beyond the “technic:” beyond “gadgets, or little home-made inventions, or … our phantasies;” they cannot be equated with real machines. Politicizing the unconscious, desiring-machines rather name a radical process of transmutation: a hybrid between inner and outer spaces, between human and non-human: “the existence of a machinic phylum.” This exercise invites revisiting contemporary forms of intimacy, ridding thought of cliched dualisms and classical continuities. Desiring-machines are neither subjects or objects of interaction, neither triggers of intimacy nor its conditions of possibility. Rather, they offer a phylogenetic decomposition of the very notion of subjectivity. From this vantage point we restage an array of scenarios in which the prevailing insistence on interiority and depth coexists with proliferating rampant processes of extimacy. Abnegating a distinction between inside and outside, this analytical lens instead focuses on a machinic coupling of heterogeneous elements.

Raman Aksionov. The urban comedy or the journey beyond / happening / group call and a walk / audio-channel in the collective chat

All participants should pick a place in the city center where the network is good enough for calls. After a group call, everyone starts their journey to any location where the signal disappears. Having discovered the place, they can make a short description or a big story about the trip.

Ingeborg Henriksen, Johanne Bøckmann. Clay Shoes / Digital performance / stream stream in WHPH instagram

The performance takes place on Instagram live — and is a 2 person shared screen. Both screens — will feature a pair feet. One screen will be set in an urban environment (Oslo) stomping a pair of shoes made of clay — in Oslo there is night — and traffic sounds. The other screening is set in a rural environment — happening in Northern Norway where there is still sun(midnight sun) we will see a pair of naked feet — sinking in to a mud hole. The piece is a grounding ritual for the summer solstice — where we are exploring ways of becoming one with the ground. As the sun in North of Norway never go down in summer — we want to play with these contrasts — as the movement of the sun is how we define time. Light — dark, day-night, Urban — rural. What connects us. In the same way that the sun get born every morning.

Natalia Nikulenkova. To Tell Fortunes by Guy Debord / A performative walk / video conference / audio-channel in the collective chat

We are disoriented, confused and immersed in a situation of uncertain duration and an unknown end that may not come. The constant feeling of fatigue, the loss of a sense of time, the increasing anxiety become part of everyday life. We must observe the new rules related to social distance, which become a ritual, but are in fact an external order. We must make the choice between health and friendship, between freedom and security, but that choice has already been made for us.

When we go out into the street, we become a kind of dissident who breaks the “stay home” order.

What has changed while we were at home?

I propose that we take part in an artistic study that should rethink the new language woven into the fabric of the city. It will be a walk that every participant can take in their country, city, district.

It will be necessary to leave the house at a certain time, taking a smartphone and an external battery (power bank).

Once connected to the video conference, the participants will take turns reading the inscriptions that they will encounter on their way. This walk will be a joint poetic improvisation, which will then be deciphered and presented as text.

Sanna Samuelsson. NO TIME / video / audio-channel in the collective chat

In English. NO TIME is a sound and text performance by Sanna Samuelsson, based on found text in her own laptop, both written by her and from random pdf’s. Fluttering between fragments of manure and decomposing bodies, to the image of Marie Antoinette’s mock farm The Hameau de la Reine burning during the revolution, the performance explores connections between the supposed standstill of the pastoral landscape, with the capitalist notion of certain places as irrevocably irrelevant.

Vita Zelenska. Circulating hope seminar / Collective writing/reading game / audio-channel in the collective chat

Sounds or words

How do slow hopes operate us these days, how does waiting creates our online tracks and routes? Slow down is often presented as the hope of new ecological and more attentive to inequalities futures, but how the slowdown is performed as hope for nothing? New pointless rounds are rounds of hope betrayed are plays of hope for nothing, the hope of hope’s nonexistent.

Writing together a poetry letter that goes round and round, round a clock we could say, the clock that works for nothing.

Expressing our pointless erotical love for plants that can’t touch us, plants-for-nothing, hopelessness — a matter of future, up and down, greens and to the Earth.

Circulation of hope which entails hopelessness is overwhelming and can be put in a far-away sound of losing that is sound of loosening and tightening again as if gathering yourself for wholesome hope, that would make us sick and back again to the promising hope for nothing.

Great Circus of Failure and Masha

The score ‘Randevu’ is an attempt to formalize and structure an experience in distance communication explored by Masha Komarova and Great Circus of Failure from winter 2019 and spring 2020.
Great Circus of Faliruse was found by Masha Fomenko and Petr Laden in the spring of 2018. Working with interactive performances and new media, Circus is exploring the forms of co-creation and fragile sincere interspecies coexistence.
Masha Komarova is a Belarusian artist, currently based in Brussels. She is interested in postdramatic theatre and intermedia arts. Everyday aesthetics plays an important role in Masha’s artistic approach. The perception and experience of objects from both points of view of a spectator and a consumer afterwards find a reflection in Masha’s art works. https://www.greatcircusoffailure.com/ https://mariakomarova.wordpress.com/

The vocal-instrumental ensemble Red Hogweed. Shift / Dance / stream stream in WHPH instagram

Over a certain period, we will dance, according to pre-prepared instructions. We will move outwardly asynchronously, as one body, and inside ourselves — synchronously. In this way we can be at a timeless point and explore the space around us and our thoughts and feelings about it.

Everyone can join the dance. To do this, use the instructions.

Can a dance be timeless? How human body feel during the dance? Do we own our body during the dance? Who or what does it belong to? At what time point is it located? Can we, while dancing, exist simultaneously in the past, present and future? Time is always about synchronism and asynchrony. Asynchrony is a mismatch in time. Is it possible to assume that asynchronous dance is timeless? We are sure that it is.

Albert Allgaier. Cinema Shiro  / Online screening / audio-channel in the collective chat

Cinema Shiró is an international film festival dedicated to a single movie. By using an obscure recording of a late night television broadcast on VHS tape it explores the social, sculptural and situationist dimensions of collective movie experiences. For WHPH we will re-examine and re-configure the possibilities and limits of online screenings – expanded cinema, literally.

I invite everyone to participate in a collective digital walk which will be a created online space with many different paths and portals that will use hyperlinks to move from one to another. At some point, those wandering in hyperspace will be able to intersect and diverge in the same way. Something is open access but something is private, somewhere you can add and leave a message and somewhere just pass through. Privacy settings will determine the texture and materiality of the spaces. 🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗🔗

Judith & Franca. t.b.a. / Reenactment of late GDR lesbian-feminist utopian gathering / video conference / audio-channel in the collective chat

Late Socialism in Germany was the time of awakening of lesbian-feminist potentialities. During the few and long months when everything seemed uncertain and possible, groups of (lesbian) women gathered in all GDR-towns to redefine their place in society. Few months later, their new-found voice was drowned in the noise of neoliberal chit-chatting. But when we listen closely, their agitated, angry, loving voices still resonate in us.

We want to examine the queerfeminist potentialities of late socialism, letting its dreams and ideas slip through broken time into our realities, connect to past present and examine our present past. What has been there all the time? What was lost on the way? Time to re-connect.
