Whose time is it anyway? The future is behind us, the past is ahead of us

17:00
Event: Public Talk
Location: NEC conference hall

Edit ANDRÁS, independent scholar, living and working in Budapest as a senior member of the Institute of Art History of HAS Research Centre in the Humanities, and in Long Island, NY

This presentation aims to elaborate on space and time and on how they are articulated in various theories and what is out there for our region. The starting point is the “institution of the politics of time”, voiced by Rolando Vázquez, one of the advocates of decolonial option, a theory originating in Latin America. He argues that chronology and imposition of modern time are at the heart of the modern/colonial systems of oppression, and therefore, resistance against “hegemonic globalization” should question the universality of modern time.
