The Procrastination Marathon, scheduled to take place on the seventh of June, at the Jardim Botânico de Lisboa, was postponed… Or, is this precisely what it is: something that begins as soon as it is announced, and which is indefinitely delayed. Could this be a part of the procrastination project? If so, a marathon only underlines what already exists, but disguised as numerous plans for accomplishment. So, are they plans for postponing, or for procrastinating? If for “covidic” reasons confinement is prolonged, the meeting is reflective, in lieu of providing a real life gathering. Eight interviews about the power of these encounters were proposed and are now available on the TBA website. In place of a procrastination marathon we have access to concrete discourses, approaching encounters that are difficult to describe. What is improvising? Conversing? Playing? Finding relationships, connections, nexuses? Positioning ourselves? Knowing how to perpetuate the place of not knowing?
