‘Contemporary art has explored such diverse registers of temporality as wasting and waiting, regression and repetition, deja vu and seriality, idleness and unrealized potential, non-consummation and counter-productivity, the belated and the premature, the disjointed and the out of synch – all of which go against sequential time and index slips in chronological experience. While theorists have proposed radical perspectives such as the “anachronistic”or “heterochronic” reading of history, artists have opened up the filed of time to the extent that the very notion of the contemporary is brought into the question.
Time is one of a series of documenting major themes and ideas in contemporary art.’ – from back cover.
