Actuality is … the interchronic pause when nothing is happening. It is the void between events. (George Kuebler, The Shape of Time, Remarks on the History of Things 1962)

What do we mean by “understanding” something? We can imagine that this complicated array of moving things, which constitutes “the world” is something like a great chess game being played. (…)We do not know what the rules of the game are; all we are allowed to do is to watch the playing. (Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher: Richard P. Feynman)

 

1. Why bother with a repetition if it doesn’t bring along any change? Is it about playing it safe? Could we find other responses to our present condition rather than indifference or melancholy?

2. We need some sort of gesture to wake us up from this staleness. Any action without aspiration for further developments is farcical and uninteresting. Could an upraise start from this very room?

3. To look backwards is nowadays a common but incomplete strategy. Can we discuss what is happening here and mould what will happen after? This isn’t about denying the necessity of narratives. On the contrary it is through these stories that we could ask ourselves: ‘what else now’?

4. We are not living an event, but just enacting its representation. What’s under our present desire to disguise ourselves with the past? What happened to our desire for cultural development? Shouldn’t we expect something more from our work?

5. We look at images of the past to look at ourselves, but their second-hand representation feels now too weak. Are the revolutionary engines always linked with the ‘outmoded’ that has vanished?
