At what frequency is an event registered, circulated and retained? This lecture suggests reading contempo-rary arts practices dealing with issues of archivization and memory building through a sensibility to rhythm. Following the assumption that the individual is infiltrated by global exchanges – and itself dispersed and distributed within globally connected networks – the hypothesis is that contemporary art shows an increased sensitivity to horizontal connections on a global scale, replacing acts of vertical anachronizing by acts of what may be called xenochronizing. By investigating the relation between the different temporalities of very different materialities and technologies addressed within these practices, the lecture critically addresses con-ditions of memory and archival control.

The seminar is public, and we welcome everybody.
