The international group exhibition A Long Time Short focuses on the complex understanding of time in our present days. The works of the participating artists critically question the concept of a linear, one-dimensional and monetary division of time and dismiss it in favour of subjective models and multi-layered theories. For in our global and digital simultaneity, the collective perception of time varies from furiously fast to infinitely slow. Quite often, different speeds may run parallel – while we are likewise caught up in both the past and the future.
