Scripts of the present. Negotiating relationality and rhythm within contemporary arts practices.

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

This article is an exercise in thinking through the images and operations offered by a selection of contemporary art practices concerned with propositions of historical agency and forms of collectivity related to memory, by connecting a tale of the big computer, to a string of COBOL code, and a shipwrecked rhinoceros and a diver as well as the two figures from Indic mythology, Yaksha and Yakshi.
Taken together the artworks become an expression of the challenge posed to the present in how to understand, which “now” it is that we inhabit and with whom, asking which fragments of the past we actualize and inform in order to find directions towards the future.
