"How public space is organised is highly pollitical. Putting art outside it's assigned area is already pollitical"

Manifesto about public art now by organisation Situations recommended by Tim Etchells.

Volgelenzangpark 17bis -   Benjamin Verdonck

"I don't research, I just do. It's all very intuitive."

                         

 

In conversation with Benjamin Verdonck

“We tilt constantly. Little by little every day. We walk in an angle towards a reality, though we do not fall, we do not stubble on the ground, but just learn to not get dizzy from our new inclination. And we see things around us as if they are standing upright, while nothing stays upright. Athens becomes more and more askew. And we follow it.”

∼ Christos Chrissopoulos - Wanderer Consciousness, Okto Publications 2015 (free translation from Greek)

 

 

In conversation with Tim Etchells

Felipe Fernandez-Armesto describes time as a state of conscouisness: in 1889, the French philosopher Henri Bergson proposed a new way of understanding "duration", the time we spend in this public space is doomed to be an individual time. It seems to me that this time in the street is trying to push us inward. as "a state of consciousness" and subverted belief in the objective reality of time (Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, 2016).

 

 

 

“The only way to get someone from Chronos time to Kairos time, is to tell them a story.”

                                                                                     

In conversation with Joke Hermsen

 

“The only answer to who are you is: let me tell you a story.”

                                                                                     

In conversation with Joke Hermsen

In Waiting, Shahram Khosravi describes an objective view on time most recognised in public spaces: in western societies, people approach time in terms of how it can be used most efficiently. Time is associated with success and money. It is presented as a form of capital (Khosravi, 2014)

In The written space, Marianne van Kerkhoven speaks about what the telling of a story through art means: The space in which this dialogue is played out is not a real place where people meet each other, but rather an imaginary universe where ideas and feelings enter into a dialogue with each other and with themselves (van Kerkhoven, 1992).

In Beginning, Sabine Pochhammer speaks of the promise of time outside of Chronos: The idea of such an “outside” relieves us for a moment from the relentlessness of the passage of time and allows the utopia of a different time or temporal order to appear, one in which our earthly laws are no longer valid and which is not characterized be speed, economic activity and linearity (Pochhammer, 1997).
