Can the calendar become a way to remind ourselves of our existential embeddedness in the course of nature?

Beyond its organisational function as a yearly planner, Die Junge Akademie's 2023 calendar titled "2023 - one day, one day at a time" invites us to reflect on time and its patterns as integral parts of all life on earth.

In seven written contributions, current members and alumnae of Die Junge Akademie respond from various professional and artistic perspectives to an artefact that has been specifically selected for them in each case and address the meaning, quality and experience of time.

EMBODIED TIME On Dreams of Millennia Rona Kobel

SHARED TIME On Tethering Michael Bies

TRANSCULTURAL TIME On Palimpsestuous Artifacts Isabelle Dolezalek

THEOLOGICAL TIME On Beginning and Nothingness Senthuran Varatharajah

CYCLICAL TIME On the Periodicity of Activities in Agriculture Hermine Mitter

PERFORMATIVE TIME On Navigation and Night Racha Kirakosian

COSMIC TIME On Breaks and Continuities Anna Lisa Ahlers

These impulses are published alongside selections from "Mesmerizing Mesh", the latest series of works on paper by Berlin- and Seoul-based artist Haegue Yang. With exuberant titles such as "Barbell-Powered Sunrising Soul Sheet Atop Another" or "Butterfly Windblast Arrow Formation", Yang’s intricate patterns of geometry dance forth in a play of ten thousand things—like a kaleidoscope uniting abstraction and form. Inviting us to contemplate how one folds in the multiple as the multiple enfolds the one, these artworks enhance our cultural literacy of living configurations, time-scapes, and cosmic emergence.
