To mark the close of the exhibition Doing Time, at Palazzo delle Prigioni and Collateral Event of the 57th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, promoted by Taipei Fine Arts Museum of Taiwanwe, we have arranged a fantastic talk event: Wasting Time scheduled to take place at 2 pm on 24 November 2017 at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia

We cordially invite you to join our esteemed international guests in a reflection around the show and its cultural and philosophical resonances.

Artist Tehching Hsieh and curator Adrian Heathfield will be joined by leading figures from the fields of performance theory, philosophy and anthropology: Bojana Kunst, Jow Jiun Gong and Tim Ingold.

Discussions will traverse the propositions around time, labour and waste inherent to Hsieh’s epic work.

Kunst will discuss the proximity of Hsieh’s work to feminist art of the 1980s, Gong will explore questions of legality, migration and the wasteland in Hsieh’s work, while Ingold will examine Hsieh’s use of freedom and regulation, immanent life and undergoing in art.

Free admission.

For those who cannot be physically present in Venice, we will live stream the event in both English and Chinese at 2pm. The streaming link will be available at https://youtu.be/F1BTu2r8GhU
