WHAT IS MEANS TO BE CONTEMPORARY


“Those who are truly contemporary,” Giorgio Agamben writes, “who truly belong to their time,
are those who neither perfectly coincide with it nor adjust themselves to its demands. … To
perceive, in the darkness of the present, this light that strives to reach us but cannot—this is what
it means to be contemporary.”
