International Exhibition Project

MATTER OR TIME is an exhibition project of contemporary art in the heritage environment of Ennejma Ezzahra in Sidi Bou Said. It will take place from 20 to 22 May 2021, daily from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm. It displays national and international artists with a diversity of artistic approaches.

MATTER OF TIME gathers artistic positions that thematize the impact of time in nature and culture, natural and artificial materials. It addresses the changes in growing, ageing and fading. It includes artworks that encompass music, performative processes and all kinds of time-based artistic expressions. MATTER OF TIME refers to the productive aspects of time as well as it will refer to dust, decay, and disintegration. The works’ scale range from miniature drawings to architecture projections.

The art mediation program of MATTER OF TIME seeks to realize a discursive space in order to enable every individual visitor and participant to experience and interact with space, the art and its context.

MATTER OF TIME is developed by the TASAWAR Curatorial Studios. The exhibition program will profit from a variety of backgrounds and experiences of the participants of the curatorial study program. The artistic director is Bettina Pelz.

MATTER OF TIME is part of the one-years study program on art-in-context, hosted by the GOETHE-INSTITUTE Tunisia.
