MATTER OF TIME is an international exhibition project with artists from Tunisia, North Africa and from around the world. It results from a collective ambition of artists and curators to realize a contemporary art project at the Ennejma Ezzahara grounds.

While the cultural heritage site is aiming to conserve a moment in time, the exhibition project refers to time as passing and as the habitat of change. The broad variety of artistic approaches on display thematizes physical and biological aspects of time, refers to psychological and philosophical perspectives, thematizes socio-cultural and societal dimensions as well as as it will stage diverse takes on how to detect, measure and control time.

The exhibition program MATTER OF TIME is developed and produced by students and alumni of the TASAWAR Curatorial Studios, directed by Bettina Pelz. It is a program hosted by the Goethe-Institute Tunis, initiated and co-ordinated by Emily Sarsam.
