Event Details

Unpunctual Encounters

 

Unpunctual Encounters will consider not-being-on and running-out-of-time-

 

Together with a series of speakers, the audience will be invited to consider the lags, lapses, and slippages associated with deferral and delay, addressing those anxious moments of an uncertain duration that perhaps now, more than ever, have come to characterise contemporary experience. From the jarring effect of institutions out of sync, to the untimely departures offered by art and literature: what does it mean not to keep up with things, or, then again, to be persistently left waiting on the verge of the expected? 

 

Time, buttons, and the surpassing disaster

Dr Lisa Baraitser | Reader in Psychosocial Studies, Birkbeck, University of London.
