“If something is boring after two minutes, try it for four.
If still boring, then eight. Then sixteen. Then thirty-two.
Eventually one discovers that it is not boring at all.” – John Cage
Space/Time Berlin is a new platform for bringing together contemporary video and performance artists whose work focuses on affecting audiences’ experience of time. Presented as a series of events taking place across Berlin’s free arts scene, Space/Time challenges audiences to move beyond the thirty-second glance of art tourism to find new ways of viewing art and the world. Given that video and performance exist in four dimensions, can these mediums alleviate, rather than simply add to, the deluge of digital stimulation that infiltrates every aspect of contemporary life? Can art decelerate our lives?
Interested artists should apply with CV, samples of previous work, and a proposal or documentation of the piece to be considered. Submit all materials to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before October 1, 2016.
