Event Description

In this year's Theatrum Mundi we are open to discussions on the concept of time.

Originally, time was defined as a peculiar relationship between deity, nature, and man and his human activities. After Galileo, the concept of “physical time” was established, and nature became an autonomous region of the universe, and a concept independent of human world with its own mechanical laws. Within this frame, a new concept of time gradually took on its own meaning, namely, the “social time”, human time. As a result, time began to be perceived as something subjective and opposed to physical time.

Within the concept of “subjective time”, an important insight of modern history has emerged – the realization of historicity of all that is human. As a finite and mortal being, the modern age man began to perceive all his socio-political institutions as historical. In this context, and in the context of the modern man’s self-understanding, the notion of experienced time – a controversial unity of past, present, and future (Bergson, Heidegger) – gained additional meaning related to the “search of lost time”. This is particularly evident in the constitution of the term “lifeworld”, and in the new definitions of (inter)subjectivity and of individual existence in relation to community.

We are intrigued to know how time is related to mind. Different interpretations of subjective time and the corresponding models of consciousness confront us with the problem of defining the Where and When of Consciousness in the Brain.

We are interested in time as a fundamental aspect of human cognition and action. We would like to explore its relation to language and culture, the development of temporal concepts, the storage and retrieval of temporal information in autobiographical memory, the neural and cognitive representations of time, etc.

We are open to contributions on the relationship between «time-based art» (video and sound artworks, film or slide-based installations, software art and other forms of technology-based artworks, some of them regarded as installation art), performance art, and theatrical performance.

We kindly ask philosophers of time, philologists, artists and physicists to join us in Dubrovnik and renew the old debate about the «event».
