Appropriating Hans-Jörg Rheinberber’s work on Experimental Systems, the presentation will make links to theories of contemporary art. It will suggest a possible
departure of artistic research from contemporary
art by deploying Nietzsche’s notion of the “untimely” against the famous claim made by Roland Barthes, who
(inspired by Nietzsche, and quoted by Agamben) said that “the contemporary is the untimely”.
