The main premise behind “Time of Others” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (MoT) is that there is no fixed self — “otherness” can be a matter of recognizing that our identities and qualities as people can change. The curatorial team behind the exhibition do not use “otherness” in its more postcolonial sense of constructed narratives of difference, but want visitors to consider it as an issue of alterity and an opportunity to think about selfhood.

According to MoT curator Che Kyongfa, the intellectual background to this is the work of the filmmaker, theorist, and artist Trinh T. Minh-ha.
