“Due to the accelerated and project-like character of our inner time, the subject finds himself in a no man’s land (that is very often a non-place, as defined by Marc Auge) if something does not function or if nothing goes on; he feels as though the duration intrudes upon him and, paradoxically, steals his most intimate time (which is actually heavily managed by the contemporary apparatuses)”

Read Bojana Kunst’s excellent text about duration, and how we need to forget ourselves – as subjects – in order to create opposition to the current agenda of acceleration. It relates to my discussion of the social media and their (in)capability for helping us building collectives: https://cultural-sustainability.eu/2014/11/20/social-media-cultural-sustainability-collectives/
