The ancient Terminalia festival was celebrated on the last day of the Roman calendar year: February 23. This holiday centered on one of the oldest Roman gods, Terminus, a mysterious and largely forgotten deity who was often represented in the form of the stone boundary markers guarding the outer limits of the Roman empire. But Terminus was imagined to hold influence over less physical boundaries too, like that between two months, or between two groups of people.In this tradition, the Terminalia Festival of Psychogeography takes place every year with walks around the globe that explore ‘frontiers’. As part of the festival, Ienke Kastelein and Witold van Ratingen organize an annual participative walk with choreographic and textual elements.

This year, the celebration of Terminalia of the Low Countries takes place in Ghent: a walk as a turning point, looking back and forward with a Janus Head and a handkerchief as props.
Starting at St Veerleplein, Gent 12.45, we will be drifting for about 2 hours.
