The Time Complex Manifesto
The time has come to decolonise time; to introduce new categories of time, new strategies of survival and ways to inhabit time; to give time a time and pace that are not measurable through conventional instruments.
A time that lives in a heartbeat and is faster than a 200 Mbps internet connection.
A time that is endless and perpetual.
A time of radicality and possibilities.
A time able to sabotage and subvert ideologies and power structures.
Thinking time: a time for reflection and meditation.
A time that interrogates and infiltrates fixated systems of knowledge.
A time that breathes attuned with the environment: the lost time of our ancestors.
A time that is queer, unpredictable, and eludes binary dichotomies.
A time where we learn from history, and we repeat only that that is worth repeating,
not just the same atrocities and mistakes.
A time that is productive because it is creative.
A time that does not make of creativity a mere product.
A time of personal responsibility and self-determination.
A time that is an anarchic dimension full of surprises and poetry.
A time in which to rest and unwind and a time in which to focus and fight back.
A time in which everybody's life matters and is treasured, even more so if previously
oppressed or subjected to violence.
A futurist time, a biological time, a digital time.
We are longing for that time.
Welcome to a new time.
