School of Temporalities

How do we use time? How do we get used to time? And how are we used by time?

The ‘School of Temporalities’ questions a taken-for-granted understanding of time as an inert background of our social lives. The project explores how time is treated as a precious commodity and pervades our time-conscious society. What are these economies of time?

Over the course of one year, various groups of artists and research teams will explore how different understandings of time and embodied experiences of temporality are intertwined with power and agency. The research is guided by the question: How are individuals grouped according to certain time patterns? The School of Temporalities investigates collaboratively, performatively and visually how these time patterns impact and shape the ways in which people interact and live together.

In its first venture, the School of Temporalities uses the infrastructure of the art manifestation Call of the Mall to investigate ‘the backstage of time’ in Hoog Catharijne.

The School of Temporalities is initiated by Annette Krauss
