so that everything doesn’t happen at once

This intervention takes place at the Muntplein in Brussels during the day on Saturday October 13, 2018 without an audience. It will be documented and mapped in different ways and subsequently presented and discussed on Saturday evening, October 13, 2018, at 7pm in a conversation with Rozalinda Borcila, Martin Belou, Naïmé Perrette, Jeroen Peters and C.K. Raju.

 

So that everything doesn’t happen at once is an experiment in generating folds in space and time, using the Muntplein as a real-time film set that is a space both of production and of image consumption. Time and space loop back on themselves, accelerate, decelerate, rupture. Multiple folds of space-time coexist in perpetual perceptual feedback loops of multiplicity and simultaneity. This project is part of an ongoing long-term collaboration between Sasha Litvintseva and Beny Wagner, explored through the production of moving image, lectures, texts, and curatorial projects.
