Time is Out of Joint, the time not in order, out of the hinges is also the time of suspension, the time of disorientation.

"È forse questa la condizione in cui ci troviamo oggi: nell’impossibilità di comprendere il nostro presente. Abbiamo bisogno quindi di una distanza che ancora una volta la scansione del tempo ci restituirà". Cristiana Collu, Direttrice della Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea

The time of suspension is also the epochè, the suspension from judgment. And this is perhaps the condition in which we find ourselves today, in the impossibility of understanding our present. We therefore need a distance that once again the scan of time will probably return us and enable us to have a more precise vision.

But the epochè is also the beginning of a new time; a time where some things end, and others begin. And this is in my opinion the most interesting perspective from which we have to see what awaits us, so certainly “everything will be fine”, but when everything has gone well, we would have already had to prepare the new time.

And the new time, which comes – because the future as a famous aphorism says “sooner or later comes” – is the time of adventure because the etymology of this term comes from the latin advenire, therefore something that comes to meet us. And we too must go to meet what awaits us by trying to plan that part of the future that is still in our hands.
