Local Time 2020 ce is a programme of conversations and fieldwork that explores the ways in which species, technologies and geographies generate and embody diverse relationships with time. It forms part of the reasearch for the ongoing project The Habitat of Time curated by Julie Louise Bacon and manifests as a series of podcasts.
The programme connects the experiments with social, physical and subjective time in The Habitat of Time exhibition
and curatorial residency
with an extended network of artists and theorists.
Local Time 2020 amplifies ways of being and relating that emerge from the connections between human and more-than-human temporalities. What happens when we turn away from regimes of acceleration, hyper-production and exhaustion? How is the local networked, global and planetary, in ways that support life?
The programme stems from an ongoing process of dialogue and collaboration, including a collective performance and publishing work presented in Artspace, Sydney in 2017. Edited versions of these conversations will be posted as podcasts.
