For the January/February issue of ART PAPERS, guest editor Niels Van Tomme invited a broad range of international contributors to reflect on the topic of temporality. Addressing ways in which the experience of time resonates and changes throughout diverging geographies and socio-political contexts, the publication highlights artistic practices that bypass straightforward mediations of time while offering critical reflections on notions of past, present and future.

Introduced by ART PAPERS executive director Saskia Benjamin, this event features a presentation by guest editor Niels Van Tomme and a special screening of recent videos by Raqs Media Collective and Société Réaliste.
