The programme connects The Habitat of Time exhibition and curatorial residency with the extended network of artists and theorists involved with the project research. While the clock-time concept of the local was standardised in the 19th century to serve industrialisation, the programme focuses on the multiple and vital forms of time that are embedded in the local in our networked age.
What happens when we turn away from global regimes of acceleration, hyper-production and exhaustion? How do connections between human and more-than-human temporalities generate new ways of living locally and thinking collectively? How is the local networked and planetary?
The programme stems from an ongoing process of dialogue and collaboration, including a collective performance and publishing work presented in Artspace, Sydney in 2017.
