“We have always derived certain temporal divisions from a natural course of events. The alternation between day and night is the most natural and in a way absolute for us, but as we know, even this is not thoroughly regular. Empirically, we have found the most accurate part of time, the rhythm which lets us measure all happenings. The atomic clock time, for instance, is based on the caesium half-life. When we fast-forward a film with a plant in it , its motion might appear entirely alive and we should not interfere with its own time. Every tone of a melody also appears after a certain time. In everyday life, we usually do not ask but rather look at our watch: for us, the time is something to count and measure. The most common conception of time originates from Aristotle: Time is a measured movement with regard to ‘before’ and ‘after’.” (Richard Loskot)

“What in the past was considered an escape from the system, today loses its critical impact and is absorbed by the system itself. Critical thinking has been transformed into accepted and consumerist lifestyle and becomes just another commodity. Coming to terms with these new conditions of contemporary criticism is only possible through a new, closed and autonomous space that will serve as a platform for independent observations of reality. This principle worked in times of Guy Debord and can be also reinstated today.” (Aleksandra Hirzfeld)
