The WH!PH! has already begun, but you still have a chance to take part in the events. This is how the organisers describe the platform.

“We know what will be today, but we don’t know what was yesterday. We work as time players, trying to catch the tail of distributed collectivity like a cat.

But how not to be deluded and catch your own tail? Our task is not reproduce the virtual double-gangers of our actions and experience, but rather to dive into the nutrient pool of distributed collectivines with time difference, inventing forms of co-presence, co-animation, co-foliation, co-formation and multiple co-s.

Together, we’d like to build and fill one of the support structures, one of the calendars, one of the scenarios of the present.

This year’s programme offers various formats: instructions, synchronised walks, live situations, shows, chats. The programme is arranged in drifting slots that open for a certain period of time.
