First Quantum Flux Footballum Equinox Fest (FQFFEF) - London on March 19-25 [updated March 10th]
- Written by DAMTP
Saturday, March 19th, 12AM (Noon) - Shifting the Goalposts 3SF Match at Greenwich, London: close to observatory and so to intervene into the metric control of time and space. Goals are continuously changing its location and the players also should check themselves not to get out too far from the pitch. It would be interesting for the pitch to traverse multiple environments - grass, roadway, pond, slope. Our game could rotate across the meridian - symbolically uniting East with West in a spiral motion - the onset of Jorn's complexity vandalism.... also experiments with fluxstilted football elements included. [Field preparation for Sunday match].
Sunday, March 20th, 12AM (Noon) (in all locations starting at [still] Greenwich time) - Quantum Superimposition London (c)Up Wahdat of 3SF Kathiral at Greenwich Park (a psychic anchor of absolute time). There is planned superimposition of 99 players for one game of 9 teams consisting of 11 players each.In fact there will be 3 games of 3Sf football played simultaneously in one pitch and 3 games played simultaneously in three different locations:
1. Greenwich Park, London.
2. Carrara, Italy (1PM local time) in the square besides Dome at the footballer marble giant of 1557 by Baccio Bandinelli.
3. Vondelpark (1PM local time), Amsterdam.
Monday, March 21st, 7PM - Urban Card Game – Joker, meeting for the game at 6PM at Divus.
Monday, March 21st, 12PM (Midnight) - Thugs Gorillas Match on Deptford-Greenwich border, London - to commemorate time superimposition of George Maciunas (1975, NYC) and Martin Zet's (2015, London) bone&head breaking thugery.
Tuesday March 22nd - Trivium Reclaiming Match, 1pm, Westferry Gore Octagon, reactivating Three-Sided Football’s pedagogical role in conveying the trivial arts, later suppressed in favour of the proto-Masonic Quadrivium.
Wednesday, March 23rd, since 6PM at Divus, London. - A Trigomanic 3(/n)-Sided Chess Development and the "Knight's Detour" The Knight’s Detour: Unworkshop in 3-Sided Trigomanic Chess Development & the Travelling Salesman’s Dilemma. Experimental unworkshop in the construction of n-sided chess boards and pieces (Situmetry), building upon discussions around triolectically extending Abu Zakariya Yahya ben Ibrahim al-Hakim’s Knight’s Tour and Gherasim Luca’s Cubomania – through which the chessboard is derived – into the two other forms of regular tessellation on a Euclidean plane (Hexamania and Trigomania) and beyond, towards further dimensions, into the streets and to the stars – Contact theNXTPA (at) for details.
Thursday, March 24rd, 12AM (Noon), عرس مبارکपत्र: Karl Marx Vernal Equinox Full Moon 8pc UrSéance देशat Highgate Cemetery, London.
Thursday, March 24th, time will be announced secretly - Match to Smash Serious Culture of Bourgeoisie and White Supremacy - starting in the middle of the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern. Even a minute would be sufficiently symbolic. A Zone of Proletarian Development deep in enemy territory.
Friday, March 25th, 7PM - Artefacts Show & Fest Closing Celebration at Divus London, Enclave 5, 50 Resolution Way, London.
Coincidental Events, Unworkshops and Experiments
March 17th-26th – Durational Unworkshop in Applied Triptography (everywhere). A triolectical form of photography. The subsequent exposures will be Situchemically developed to form a superimpositional triolectical image, doing away with the monoperspectival representation of our experiments.
Monday March 21st, 12-3pm – Do Knot Workshop (Situationist Basket-Weaving), Henryson Road, Brockley. Practical examination of commonalities between quantum knots, the folk knots of the world and the situ-analysis of Alexandre-Théophile Vandermonde, through plastic experimentation. Topology meets Twister – Contact theNXTPA (at) for more details.
Friday March 25rd day/evening – Unworkshop in Situgestion (‘the Psychogeographer’s Cookbook’). ‘Recipes’, in the form of found lists and materials collected over the course of a dérive, the results of which form a set of instructions/constraints for the cooking of a meal to be shared between the participants and public at the festival closing ceremony.
Date TBC – Introduction to Strategic Optimism Football’s Ongoing Experiments in Archaeomathematics. Ludic experiments to trial SOF’s theories as to an alternate pre-Euclidean mathematical paradigm, operative in the Neolithic era, from which 3-sided football derives. Compelling archaeological evidence demands the rigorous testing of a number of the different shaped balls that may once have been used for football, prior to their Masonic suppression in favour of the Platonic solids and the sphere – Contact strategic.optimism.football (at) for more details)
Date TBC – Three-Sided Football Games in the Labyrinth. Investigating the notion that the game was once common practice at labyrinths. To be tested locally at Crystal Palace Maze, the labyrinthine passages leading from Blissett Street to Greenwich Park and at historically more significant labyrinths situated at Saffron Walden, Essex and on the top of St. Catherine’s Hill in Winchester – Contact strategic.optimism.football (at) for more details.
Every evening of days enlisted at 6PM - meeting at DIVUS LONDON, Enclave 5, 50 Resolution Way, London.
So far there are included fluxus elements we are looking forward to meet 'three sided footballers' (aka flux artists) from around the world to take over London as they see fit. Apparently random and spontaneous three sided football matches of one type or another springing up across the city on March 21st through 25th.
If you could inform any living or dead fluxus artist – let them to know – having anybody of them in London would be a possibility to quit either their flirting with the art system or the (un)movement itself.
