Synopsis: "This book represents a moment in a life and oeuvre constantly in flux, always branching out and converging, following a course, but at times deliberately diverging, because there is time, or time can be found--to breathe, to walk, to pause, to move on, to circle. There is poetry in Amar Kanwar's words and lyricism in his films--both method and metaphor alike by which life's distillation and dissipation become comprehensible and deeper knowledge can be gained. Space can be grasped through time, time through poetry. What is at stake is always the life of the individual, the rules of society, power, abuse, violence, the power to enlighten and the courage to change." --Urs Stahel

Product Description: Imagine nineteen sheets of paper floating forever in the wind. Imagine the simultaneous viewing of multiple time. Imagine time that is filled with as many silences as with words. Imagine the slow gathering together of time. Moment by moment. Evidence by evidence. Imagine the formal presentation of poetry as evidence in a future war crimes tribunal.

Born in 1964 in New Delhi, India, Amar Kanwar live and works in New Delhi. He is a documentary filmmaker and video installation artist, his early work having been substantially influenced by the violent events of 1984 in Delhi.

Book Description Stell dir 19 Blätter vor, die für immer im Wind schweben. Stell die vor, du könntest mehrere unterschiedliche Zeiten gleichzeitig sehen. Stell dir Zeit vor, die mit ebenso viel Stille wie mit Worten angefüllt ist. Stell dir das langsame Ansammeln von Zeit vor. Moment für Moment . Beweis für Beweis. Stell dir vor, an einem zukünftigen Kriegsverbrechertribunal würden Gedichte als offizielle Beweismittel zugelassen. »Dieses Buch stellt einen Moment in einem Leben und Oeuvre dar, das ständig im Fluss ist, sich verzweigt und verändert, weil es die Zeit gibt, oder Zeit gefunden wird - zu atmen, zu laufen, innezuhalten, weiterzugehen, Kreise zu ziehen. In Amar Kanwars Worten steckt Poesie, in seinen Filmen Lyrik – sie sind Methode und Metapher zugleich, durch welche die Essenz des Lebens und dessen Vergänglichkeit verständlich werden und tieferes Wissen gewonnen werden kann. Raum wird durch Zeit erfasst – und Zeit durch Poesie. Immer geht es um das Leben des Einzelnen, die Regeln der Gesellschaft, Macht, Missbrauch, Gewalt, die Macht der Aufklärung und den Mut zur Veränderung.« (Urs Stahel) (Text dt., engl.) 17 x 23,5 cm, 400 S., zahlr. Abb., mit Biografie und Werkliste, Leinen. Bookseller Inventory # 733261
