From 15.00 to 18.00 We Are The Time presents the World Question Center Redux. In 1969 the artist James Lee Byars collected a list of questions through conversations with 100 artists, scientists, philosophers, and other prominent thinkers and practitioners.The artist’s World Question Center became a critical document of his time. For Byars, the perfect thought takes the form of a question. He believed that answers and explanations are not the way forward. For the performative conference kick-off the Rietveld Academie’s World Question Center Redux will merge an artwork past, with questions from the present for the future. Connections are produced live on stage. With lecture, presentation and performance by respectively Koen Brams, Maria Hlavajova and Jonathan Dronsfield, an interview with Adjiedj Bakas and sweeping interventions by R. Radhakrishnan, Chto Delat’s Dmitry Vilenski, Ann Demeester, Ben Zegers, Tai Shani, Fay Nicholson, Sam de Groot and the Black Swan Collective. Moderators:Arnisa Zeqo and Laurie Cluitmans.
