Aliocha Imhoff and Kantuta Quirós are curators​ and​ art theorists​ based in Paris, as well as the founders of the curatorial platform a people is missing​ ​-​ ​le peuple qui manque. Being at the crossroad between contemporary art, theory and research, a people is missing produces exhibitions, curatorial projects and international symposiums.

Exploring chronopolitics, the exhibition that took place in the Méthode Room/Archive Room displayed curators’ ongoing researches, documents and artists’ films. Summoning concepts from recent historiographical renewal, the exhibition focused on alternative temporalities put forward by artists, overlapping temporalities - a spectrality of memory and speculation - to rethink the staging of times. The « temporal devices » exhibited were together imagining a multi-temporal and non-presentist contemporaneity and finally, tended toward a new politics of time, and even more, a possibility to govern the times differently : to imagine a « differential government of times », as it has been advocated by the philosopher Daniel Innerarity in his book, The future and Its Enemies(Stanford University Press, 2012)
Featuring art works by Rasheedah Phillips & Black Quantum Futurism/ Mark Tribe / Daniel Eisenberg / Jean-Stéphane Bron / Sven Johne / Roee Rosen / Milo Rau / Armin Linke / …

The exhibition proposed as well a lexicon of temporalities, a semantic of times as a toolbox for the regime of historicity to come.
