Time, Forward!

Exhibition catalogues and special projects

An English language publication to coincide with the exhibition “Time, Forward!”

V–A–C Foundation’s exhibition “Time, Forward!” was timed to coincide with the 58th Biennale of Contemporary Art. Its title “Time, Forward!” alluded ironically to the famous slogan of the 20th Century which lost its significance in the era of constant acceleration, of the devaluation of ideas and hybrid warfare, when it is difficult to distinguish between fact and invention, the present and the future.

The curators Omar Kholeif and Maria Kramar invited artists, writers and researchers to think about the nature of time in the modern world. In the book there is a collection of articles on a large range of topics: from the connection between capitalism and ideas of continuity to illegal streaming and from the manipulation of time to the revival of medieval guilds with their aim of protecting valuable information. In addition to the texts, the volume includes photo documentation of works included in the exhibition.
