Time stops. Time moves. Time ruins. Time heals. Time runs forwards, runs out, runs away. Time shapes space, makes history, de/forms subjects. Time fills up and empties out.
This workshop — an event showcasing work by the current cohort of ICI fellows, who have worked collectively on the ICI core project ‘ERRANS, in Time’ over the past two years — will explore and explode questions of time and temporality.
Working across, between, and against disciplines and engaging with a diverse array of objects encompassing film, literature, psychology, philosophy, visual art, and critical theory, the speakers will address questions related to temporal errancy in conversation with invited discussants.
Aiming at bringing to a halt understandings of time as merely developmentalist, linear, and/or progressive, the event will investigate different forms and aesthetics of temporal errancies and their political implications.
