ONCE UPON NOW

PERA - SCHOOL OF PERFORMING ARTS GAU | MACIEJ KUŹMIŃSKI

Compared to "then" and "later" "now" seems a very unclear and fractured concept. When I think now do I think it in relation to I, or Us, to here, elsewhere, or perhaps everywhere? While we separate the Dreams of the Future from the Failures of the Past we allign with people and events, navigate the current.

"It is but the volatility, the in-built temporality of all engagements that truly counts; it counts more than the commitment itself, which is anyway not allowed to outlast the time necessary for consuming the object of desire"
Zygmunt Bauman
