STUDIO TIME

Time is out of balance, both on an individual and on a global level. On the one hand, we are confronted with hyper-speed and acceleration, typical of the global 24h-economy, financial markets and the world of technology, big data and algorithms. On the other hand, there is an urgency to think about deep time: the slow time of Earth, climate change, the ongoing discussion on the anthropocene. While politicians and media seem only concerned with the issues of the day, the complex contemporary global economy requires long-term future visions. How do we deal with the many conflicts and paradoxes of time? How credible is the past? How real is the present? What are possible futures?
