No Linear Fucking Time

On 3 December 2021 "No Linear Fucking Time," an exhibition with gatherings, an online publication, and a symposium, opened at BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht.


Prospections is BAK's digital forum for anticipatory and propositional discourse, research, and intervention, driven by the urgencies that shape the world at present. Bringing together lived experience, documentation and documents, analysis, and foresight research, Prospections appeals to the potential of imagination-based tactics in shaping what’s to come. At the same time, it is conceived as a modest solidarity framework for supporting the work of neighboring artists, thinkers, and activists.
