Whenever Christian Mayer deals with pragmatic or ordinary political or cultural topics, it always takes place in combination with a reflection on the role of the media in which these questions are represented. For this project, Mayer focuses on the structure of Manifesta 7 itself, which seems to be a temporal paradox as it occurs at the same time in four different places. Until the 19th century, each of these places had its own calculation of time, which required a supra-regional standardization only with the beginning of railway constructions, strikingly represented by the station clock. His project consists in turning back the clock to the calculation of time as it was done before the introduction of standard CET, and to make the differences inside the cultural, political and economical homogenizations once again measurable by using the former differences of clock times.
