This is the Time. This is the Record of the Time is the second exhibition in a series of exchanges, titled Positions taking place as part of the long-term project Global Collaborations. Part one, titled Made in Commons established collaborations between Amsterdam and Yogyakarta, Indonesia; the current and second part establishes connections between the Netherlands and Beirut. In his last blog, Vincent van Velsen explore the ways in which time is perceived by the artists in the exhibition; below Vincent highlights the practice of three of the artists in more detail.
This is the Time. This is the Record of the Time is an exhibition that reflects on the way time is perceived. Where “contemporary society mostly strives for acceleration, concluding in continuously and rapidly transforming contexts, the curators want to slow down and look more mindfully at what is actually happening in the World around us, how it is happening and what it might entail. Nine artists were asked to reflect on this standpoint from their own perspective, eventually providing the visitors with a manifold approach to the concept of time and the experience of time. Vincent van Velsen shares his thoughts with us.
