Presented by CIRCUIT in association with the Documentary Research Group at Auckland University of Technology (AUT), The Time of the Now is a one day symposium which explores the challenges of addressing ‘truth’ in a post-truth world.

This symposium presents papers, speakers and responses to the following questions;

What strategies do contemporary artists employ to test media representation of reality and the means through which we channel and consume it? How do artists expand the documentary form through various material processes and formal strategies? How do artists deconstruct the surfeit of images we already have and the means by which we receive them? Can 'truth' and fiction exist in the same space? What historical artworks could be part of a revised genealogy of current documentary practices in Aotearoa New Zealand? How could an ethic of care, as understood through sustained relationships with Indigenous and diverse communities be played out through documentary practices?

The Time of the Now is CIRCUIT’s 6th annual symposium exploring artists moving image practice in Aotearoa New Zealand and internationally, and is preceded by an Artist Week of screenings, installations and events. A full programme and list of speakers and will be announced soon.
