•An array of artists join forces to tackle the philosophical concept of time •Working from a basis of greek mythology, Joke Hermsen curates a collection dedicated to Ernst Bloh's quote: "Seize eternity in the moment." Kairos Castle is a book on 'the opportune moment', with Dutch philosopher and author Joke Hermsen as curator. We know Chronos as the Greek god of time. But who also knows his grandson Kairos, the god of 'the opportune moment', who provides unexpected insights and offers new opportunities? He interrupts measurable time and represents all those inspired moments of beauty and vigor that make life intense. If Kronos is the time that we have, Kairos is the time that we are. With this book, Joke Hermsen reveals a place where this other time is experienced. Together with a team of artists she sets out in search of traces of the inspiring 'Kairos time'. With word and image, sound and colour she is seeking for muted time, for reflection, inspiration and movement. This is a collaborative project involving a multitude of artists, among them Maarten Baas, Peter Bogers, Mynke Buskens, David Claerbout, Alexandra Cool, Annabelle Daou, Mariska de Groot, Jaap de Jonge, Eric de Nie, Nicolas de Staël, Gilbert Garcin, Antony Gormley, Suzanna Hertrich, Jay Mark Johnson, Dani Karavan, Evi Keller, Olga Kisseleva, Jorge Macchi, George Meertens, Corinne Mercadier, Sofie Muller, Hans Op de Beeck, Thierry Pecastaing, André Pielage, Quayola, Pipilotti Rist, Georgia Russell, Susumu Shingu, Berndnaut Smilde, Martijn Veldhoen, Antonella Zazzera ...
