… When the watch is worn about the neck it lies in proximity to the less regular beating of the heart. … (p.57) … time might be measured by ‘rice-cooking’ (about half an hour) or ‘the frying of a locust’ (a moment). … [or by] saying ‘the man died in less than the time in which maize is not yet completely roasted’ (less than fifteen minutes). … (p.58) … For we are now at a point where sociologists are discussing the ‘problem’ of leisure. And a part of the problem is: how did it come to be a problem? … (p.95) … ––E.P. Thompson, Time, Work-Discipline, and Industrial Capitalism, 1967.
How do today’s temporal dimensions affect the way we understand a work or practice? How do artists intervene with the experience of time, embrace rhythms or offer changes in the practicing of relationships in a sense that temporality becomes a strategy of resistance as well as place for empathy?
The group presentations at Akademirommet derive from the discussion in the context of the course Sensing Time: On Temporalities, Rhythms and Memories led by Rike Frank and Saskia Holmkvist.
