Visionary thinker John Berger and Turkish artist Selçuk Demirel came together came together for the last time to create this precious little volume about time.
What Time Is It? is a playful meditation on the illusory nature of time. Our perception of time assumes a uniform and ceaseless passing of hours, but Berger suggests that time is turbulent. It expands and contracts according to the intensity of the lived moment. In this beautiful essay in pictures, Berger posits the idea that by experiencing the extraordinary, we can defy time itself.
Illustrated throughout in full colour by Selçuk Demirel in his inventive style and introduced by Berger’s friend Maria Nadotti. This title completes a trilogy of illustrated books by Berger and Demirel, including Cataract (2011), and Smoke (2017).
