Temporality in Art, Culture and Technology

online course

duration 3 weeks
credits 10 EC
fee EUR 824

Everyday life could be defined as an ongoing negotiation between different times and forms of temporality. This has perhaps never been more true than in our current historical situation, which is characterised by the 24/7 logic of contemporary capitalism (Crary 2013; Rosa 2010) and the increasing interconnection of social, cultural and technological times across the scale of the globe. Questions concerning temporality are thus pertinent in our contemporary culture.

In this course we wish to explore time and temporality in art and culture from a variety of perspectives. Whereas questions concerning space in art have been discussed for many years, temporality in art has received less attention.

A recurring theme will be how technological mediation (from clocks and photography to computers and smartphones) affect our experience of time and how this is explored in works of art.
