Thoughts on Time Travel:

We have to dig up the dead  again and again because only from them can we obtain a future. Necrophilia is love of the future.  - Heiner Mueller


Time, understood as a dimension of experience equally accessible to each and every one. A phenomenon that resists reduction and definition. Time as a medium of music and the arts that transcends chronological and efficiency-oriented regimes. But also: Time as an political category that determines the ways in which we live, work and produce – a concept and invention in service of ideological and economic interests; an instrument of power setting the beat and dictating the rhythm; a dimension of the imaginary that influences our vision of futurity and hence our freedom of action. Time as a notion of agency for contemporaries, individuals and societies.   - Maerz Music Festival 

In a culture of fast-moving surfaces  of glitz and blitz, rememberance is the first step to revolution. To remember is to situate and locate ourselves in the flow of time, that drama of history--and the possibility of a better future. Subversive memory requires a selective invocation of exemplarary movements, institutions, and figures that can shake us out of our contemporary ruts and routines and  transform us into wounded helpers and wounded healers from the wounded hurters we too often are.  -  Cornel West
