Time is out of balance, both on an individual and on a global level. How do we deal with the many conflicts and paradoxes of time? In Z33’s Research Studio Time different artists and projects articulate themes and thoughts in relation to issues such as acceleration and deceleration, deep time, the anthropocene, time and attention, and future thinking. In Milan, Z33 presents a research-based exhibition which will premiere two installations: one developed by Commonplace Studio, Tim Knapen & Jesse Howard and the other one developed by Teis De Greve. Both installations allow you to interact with the ongoing research happening within Studio Time. They enable you to take home or adapt notes, thoughts and ideas, according to your own purposes of learning or just for future inspiration.

Exhibiting two interactive installations, which will premiere in Milan, Z33 presents its renewed, research-based organization.

Designers and researchers: Commonplace Studio, Jasmine De Bruycker, Jesse Howard, Ils Huygens, Tim Knapen, Tobias Revell, Virginia Tassinari, Thomson & Craighead, Ive Van Bostraeten, Filip Van Dingenen, Maarten Vanden Eynde.

In collaboration with: Istanbul Design Biennial

Z33 Research articulates the broader subjects and lines of thought that Z33 seeks to address over a longer period of time, through exhibitions, productions, publications and other artistic projects. Z33 Research is based on an interdisciplinary approach and aims to connect visions of artists and designers with theoretical, scientific and philosophical thought and knowledge. Research, in this way, is not seen as a specific method or practice, but rather as an attitude, a questioning position and generous curiosity, that defines the way in which curators, artists and designers approach the world. The projects and artists in Z33 Research provide alternative visions, multiple voices and dynamic interpretations that encourage the re-evaluation of societal matters with a fresh and open mind-set, triggered by the imaginary and poetic character of art and design. Z33 Research currently consists of three research studios, each with its own thematic approach: Studio Time, Studio Space and Studio Work. On www.z33research.be, the various research themes are linked together by means of essays and editorial contributions from artists, writers and curators.
