These short reflections, from UC Berkeley faculty in a variety of disciplines, respond to the following question: “What does the phrase ‘time-based art’ mean to you? What are the central stakes, conventions, challenges, and opportunities of durational art in the contexts in which you work?” Collectively, they probe a wide range of practices and contexts, including, for example, Mexican festivals and midwestern American carnivals, Syrian documentary films and the “image-event,” bystander recordings of US police and state harassment of black men, and the photographic interventions of the Colombian artist Oscar Muñoz.
