How to avoid temporalities of progress?

Pol Guasch and Laura Benítez

We talk with independent curator and philosopher Laura Benítez and researcher and writer Pol Guasch about how to conceive different temporalities – human and non-human –, what worlds each temporality generates and how narrative arts allow us to generate stories of continuity: how can we be truly present? How can we assume the responsibilities of our stories of the past and our understanding of the present and future? How do the past, present and future intertwine? What narratives of temporality encourage us to think of ourselves as mortal critters entwined? How can we generate earthly stories from non-human scales?
