The work that is presented in the Mathematisch- Physikalischer Salon is equally an artistic attempt to give a graspable form to the abstract notion of time. In the Bogengalerie, visitors hear the years of the distant past and future spoken out loud when they come to the end of the section “The Course of Time”. The recording is part of an ongoing series of readings that have taken place worldwide since 1993, for instance at documenta 12 in 2007 and most recently during the Venice Biennale in 2017. They are based on the books “One Million Years (Past and Future)” —completed in 1969 and 1980 — which list the year dates, written out, from 998,031 BC to 1969 and from 1996 to 1,001,995 AD. To read them in their entirety would take approximately 100 years.
