Knut Ebeling - The Contemporary Condition - There Is No Now – An Archaeology of Contemporaneity
2018
English edition
Sternberg Press - History, Criticism and Theory
Drawing together discourses on contemporaneity and new materialisms, this book examines a material conception of temporality that makes it possible to develop a critique of the philosophical discourse on presence. Claiming that “there is no now,” Ebeling develops an archaeology of contemporaneity according to which the traces of the contemporary can only be secured through visual or material operations, not historical ones.
