This journey through the history of time combines paintings, videos and films, installations, performances and watchmaking art. The works and objects bear witness, for example, to the fleeting nature of life, tell of the changing seasons and the possibilities of pausing, as well as of the global financial market, which is now clocked to trillionths of a second. A multi-layered carpet that illuminates historical, palaeontological and physical perspectives, among other things, is rolled out over 1200m2 of exhibition space and divides the show into six chapters: these question, among other things, so-called "deep time", political dimensions and biological aspects of time. Furthermore, participatory formats invite visitors to exchange ideas about innovative models for the future: This is an attractive and urgent offer, as society is constantly debating how it will still be possible to ensure the survival of the planet and its inhabitants in the future - and how much time we have left to do so.
Curated by Cathérine Hug, the exhibition was created in collaboration with the Musée international d'horlogerie (MIH) in La Chaux-de-Fonds, as well as in exchange with CERN in Meyrin and experts.
