The book Anachronisms and the exhibition Against Time is an encounter between visual artists and writers who, in their different ways, work with history, storytelling and time. There is a fascination about returning to the past in contemporary art and literature. A past that is reinterpreted and given new meanings through creative rewritings and new writings. In the essays, poems and pictures in the book, the authors and visual artists touch upon how we experience time, how we create stories and what function the reconstruction of the past fills in contemporary culture.
Anachronisms was published in conjunction with the exhibition Against Time at Bonniers Konsthall 2007.
