In the ANACHRONISMS exhibition, the term applies to an art concept that is characterized, among other things, by repetition and delay, which is at odds with the current zeitgeist of speed, volatility and technological innovation. A certain degree of conscious obsessiveness and monomania is recognizable in the work of all the artists brought together in this exhibition. Nevertheless, the aesthetic that is unmistakably present in the works arises more as the by-product of a followed process than as the result of an explicitly pursued goal. The anachronism from the exhibition title is presented as a substantive rather than an aesthetic statement. It may be a bit far to describe this pronounced resistance as engagement, but it can be regarded as a mechanism by which art and artwork are questioned themselves and with which the work of these artists is actually up-to-date. Free to Wikipedia, the notion of 'anachronism' can be described as that which does not fit in time or that which deliberately or unintentionally violates the chronological relationship of things.
