TIME IS LOVE screening 11 Interview with the curator Kisito Assangni Interview by Emanuela Scalabrin 30 March 2018 THINK GLOBAL ACT LOCAL Exclusive interview with KISITO ASSANGNI TIME IS LOVE screening, an itinerant and serial exhibition, was born in 2008 in Paris and since then has been branching out into different international exhibition spaces, demonstrating a tenacious determination to exist. The concept, which we like very much, is simple and reminds us of the principle of a franchised shop in a virtuous way. TIME IS LOVE screening, through its creator Kisito Assangni, tenders its...

TIME IS LOVE Screening — is a video art project that travels to the largest cities in the world exploring the theme of love in difficult times of life. Love stripped of its traditional clichés and timeless idealism. These works address the complexity of human relations regardless of language, individual sensitivity or collective history. The programme proposes a reflection on revolutions, borders and customs in our modern society.
This is an opportunity to showcase well-known or emerging artists who experiment and develop the practice of moving image, as well as an opportunity for the public to approach video art, encouraging their knowledge and appreciation.


“Time is Love screenig – 11th Edition” presents itself as a multiple projection through which its creator, Kisito Assangni, proposes at each edition (the eleventh in this case) a new group of video artists. Neither the curator nor the artists are involved in the installing of the exhibition, which from time to time reaches different places on a small budget. It is by nature an itinerant exhibition, migrant, nomadic, without links to a specific place. An underground exhibition, where the rules are almost completely lacking. “Time is love” extends between repetition and the difference that takes shape from the context where it is located. Time is love, a title like a paradoxical manifesto, for an exhibition apparently without dialogue between guests (22 artists without any connection) and hosts (the organizers) but that succeeds in offering the viewer a series of reflections linked to contemporary global identity.
