Morphologies of Time. Traditional representations and hypermodern perspectives in Romania

Publié le 6 décembre 2021 Mis à jour le 7 décembre 2021

This is a lecture by Alexandra Crăciun, University of Bucharest, dedicated to Romanian time. I is conceived differently than the Western chronologies.

Set in a space where the transcendent descends, according to the Romanian philosopher Lucian Blaga, time declines an orthodox morphology that provides a sort of a liturgical circularity, but also the fragility that protects it from the eschatological radicalism. Chronos or Saturn, time that is lost or recovered, deconstructed or spatialized chronologies, the Waters of the Saturday - are all landmarks in "rereading" the meanings of traditional time in relation to the syntax of our contemporary diaries.

Alexandra Crăciun, born in Bucharest in 1972, holds a PhD in Humanities, with an interdisciplinary academic background in Philology, Art History and Psychology. Since 1997 she has been teaching postmodern culture, civilization and communication at the University of Bucharest. During the academic year 2011-2013, she was an associate professor at the University of Regensburg in Germany. As an art critic and curator, she has organized over thirty contemporary art exhibitions in Romania, Germany, France and Belgium. Among his scientific publications, the monographs, Narcisismul și problemele reflctării, Branding for Star Counters or Mic tratat de heterotopie pentru un utilizator postmodern are the result of questioning the constitution of identity through the different representations.
