Writing about art and art talk – criticism, artistic research, notes of the artist – are a significant part of the infrastructures of contemporary art. What is called contemporary art becomes meaningful in language. What is called contemporary art is saturated with linguistic meanings. Language often (but not always) translates into text. A text doesn’t come out of nothing; it always exists in relation to everything else, including images and the visual. Consequently, if contemporary art is intertwined with language and text, the contemporary art exhibition is also a discursive space.

Anywhere in no-time/Nowhere all the time takes shape linguistically and is realized as a text. In this case, the text is also attached to the space and place. It can be visible signs physically in the space; on paper, on walls and as sound. On the other hand, it is also determined immaterially; through the tacit controls of institutions and infrastructures and as theoretical and conceptual starting points. This exhibition is a textual event that can be broken down into parts, which themselves always return somewhere else.
