A Time of Ones Own: The Struggle Against One-sided Narratives of HistoryBy Malala Andrialavidrazana
The relationship to time escapes me regularly, and vice versa, due to a chronic desynchronizationan incompatibility of cruising speeds, eventhat I experience in my ordinary quotidian life and in my artistic practice. Moreover, the gap between the measurement and the evaluation of time varies significantly according to cultures, eras, and perspectives, and is also reflected in elements of language and in current prejudices that consist, in particular, of praising the strong allure of the great powers as opposed to celebrating slowness.
