“Film and video structure our experience in a linear way simply because they are moving images on a strip of emulsion. They create a story out of everything because it is inherent in the medium and in the structure of montage. But, of course, we experience time in a much more complex way. The question for me is, ‘How can I break through this idea, which is reinforced constantly? How can I make time somehow collapse or expand, so that it no longer unfolds in this one narrow form?’ This is Doug Aitken’s recent comment on his own work taken from Daniel Birnbaum’s essay Chronology which is about time, phenomenology and beyond. Issued in Russian for the first time, this essay became the intellectual starting point for the programme he has put together for the CINE FANTOM Club which will be displayed at The Biennale.
