OUTLINE: ¶#0-#3 is a festive, public get-together with gestures by Kim David Bots, Romy Day Winkel, Annosh Urbanke, Jan-Pieter ‘t Hart and Callum Dean, and music by mary and magga. Here we will present, perform and play around with the four issues of our ¶ (Pilcrow) series, published over the course of the last 2 years. The ¶ (Pilcrow) series consists of texts and images found on the online collaborative encyclopedia Wikipedia, as well as a contribution by the artist who compiled it. This event marks the end of the series by launching ¶#3: The mental traveller, compiled by Kim David Bots, while also taking moments to reflect on previous issues and the endeavour as a whole.
