This anthology contextualizes art that proposes alternatives to the models of linear time that have underpinned both capitalism and progressive modernity. Contemporary art has explored such diverse registers of temporality as 'wasting and waiting; regression and repetition; deja vu and seriality; unrealized possibility and idleness; non-consummation and counter-productivity; the belated and the premature; the disjointed and the out-of-synch - all of which go against sequentialist time and index slips in chronological experience.' While theorists such as Giorgio Agamben and Mieke Bal have proposed 'polychronic', 'heterochronic' or 'anachronic' readings of history, artists have opened up the field of time to the extent that the very notion of the contemporary is brought into question.

About the Author:

Amelia Groom is a writer and curator who has taught at the universities of Sydney and New South Wales. She is a regular contributor to frieze and Art Monthly Australia.

Review:

"Theorizing time is itself a temporal and historical activity. Combing a focus on recent writing with glimpses of the longue duree of time-theory, this anthology presents us with a constellation that is far from frozen in time. Its elements interact and enter into new relations each time the volume is consulted. You can't step into the same anthology twice." - Sven Lutticken, Lecturer on Visual Arts and Programme Director, VAMA, University of Amsterdam
