What does 'contemporary' actually mean? This is among the fundamental questions aboutthe nature and politics of time that philosophers, artists and more recently curators haveinvestigated over the past two decades. If clock time -a linear measurement that can be unified, followed and owned - is largely the invention of capitalist modernity and binds us to itsstrictures, how can we extricate ourselves and discover alternative possibilities of experiencing time?
This collection surveys contemporary art and theory that proposes a wealth of alternatives to outdated linear models of time.
