Exploring the mind-bending question, “What does contemporary actually mean?” The MIT Press book, “Time,” explores how we measure minutes. If clock time is but a construct of capitalist structure, how else can we examine this abstract concept? Essays from thinkers like Walter Benjamin and Bruno Latour do so through the lens of recent art, which eschews this chronological experience for a new perspective. A heady read, this book is a great choice for academic intellectuals who appreciate art and want to dip a toe in further to the subject.
