TIME is Love is an international video art project gathering several artists. Established in 2008, the program has traveled to major cities in the world attracting a vibrant mix of media professionals, researchers, young people and families. The screening is accompanied by exciting events, including talks and live performances.
Preoccupied with love, the project represents love stripped from its traditional clichés and timeless idealism. Each of the artists leads an interdisciplinary practice bringing a questioning and a criticism on a system of relation to others which appears to us as being dying.
Taking these ambivalent feelings as a starting point, the artists develop their own language according to their sensibility and history. The selected videos deal with prevented communications, disturbed feelings, globalisation, memory and spirituality. As a result, each video inspires the viewer to question the normative understandings of relationships in the occidental world.
