How Time forces us to consent to be a single being.
Can a 30 year age difference between two lovers result into something else than ‘having a past’ versus ‘having a future’? Inspired by Jack Halberstam’s quest to be illegible and to live a life that cannot be traced, Simon(e) celebrates an age gap between lovers as non-reproductive futurity. Drawing from Denise Ferreira da Silva and Paul Preciado, Simon(e) questions how time approaches us and how we approach time.
