The exhibition presents among others works by the New York-based artist collective  KAYA alias  Kerstin Brätsch & Debo Eilers, Fabio Marco Pirovino, Tiril Hasselknippe, Brian Jungen and Wolfgang Laib and asks for contemporary artistic approaches dealing with different layers of time.  These forms of perception withdraw themselves from accelerated networks and market dynamics through a more complex understanding of experience. Provoking ephemerality or permanence in their work the artists presented in the exhibition take up the idea of continuity / discontinuity to explore the conditions for a pervasive communication between work and recipient – eventually investigating a possible reassessment of the perception of temporality per se. The artistic gesture here serves in many works as a visual track, that builds a bridge between the act of artistic creation and the moment of observation, forming the framework for interaction.

The concept of the exhibition is based on a written conversation conducted over several months between  km temporaer and  Hicham Khalidi, curator of the 5th Marrakech Biennale. Without having met or having any previous personal contact the exchange opened the possibility of an intense conceptual enrichment, that resulted in a multi perspective view on topics, terms, artistic positions and their contextualisation. Additionally this collaboration reveals steps, disagreements and misunderstandings in the development process of the work itself and questions or sometimes even revises them through textual backjumps.

The conversation was published on October 31, the opening night of the exhibition.
