Analytic Perspectives on Time as a Form
Şeref Erol

Talk

February 28, 2019

In a talk as part of The Time Needs Changing exhibition, artist and academic Şeref Erol will explore the idea of “time as the enabler of our facilities, or in other words, our creations or conceptualizations” through correlations drawn with formal sciences (logic, mathematics) and philosophy. The thought processes Erol will tackle can be summed as a pre- and post-Kantian approach to our philosophical and scientific understanding through a critique of Kant.

The Time Needs Changing

The Time Needs Changing exhibition questioned our geo-politically controlled notions of time. The three artists in this show gave alternatives to linear time, which is currently strictly enforced by the power structures under which we live.
