Ökonomien der Zeit

 

When we talk about “economy of time”, we generally mean using our time efficiently. “Ökonomien der Zeit” looks at the many different ways in which we can use time economically, even if it means wasting it. The exhibition is centred around artistic approaches that depict their own ways of ordering and managing time by reflecting on current values and temporal structures. At the heart of these different viewpoints are issues of policy in image representation and historiography, the examination of what seem to be the increasingly ephemeral validity of products and images. Behind all this is the observation that our perception of everyday things is frequently organised into short-lived units of perception, despite our knowledge of the multifaceted nature of general interrelations: our attention is directed in each case at the here and now, or more precisely at whatever is closest to us at any particular time.
