𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘸𝘦 𝘴𝘺𝘯𝘤𝘩𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘴𝘦, 𝘪𝘧 𝘸𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘴𝘺𝘯𝘤𝘩𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘴𝘦𝘥?

This was the main question that a number of people will try to answer, during Michiel Teeuw's international live-reading 'it's five o'clock somewhere' on Thursday 21st of May.

Throughout the course of a nine-to-five working day, Michiel will use his instagram-based temporary office for temporality (@stichtingartisbook) to connect with different thinkers, each in their own time zone, each at their own five o'clock. Tune in throughout the day to hear a number of perspectives, on topics of time, connection, digitally and synchronisation.

At 09:00 UTC+2, a first connection was made, with Victoria, Australia (UTC+10). After this, each hour a timezone westwards of this will be connected. The last connection was made at UTC+2 17:00, with Rotterdam, Netherlands. In each timezone, a participant was share a text they have written for the project.
