The change of time during the night from next Saturday to Sunday is part of the performative art action of the artist Florian Dombois, which will also be transmitted via livestream.
What if time went backwards? Are there alternative understandings of time beyond the technical-counted and inexorably progressing time?
The art project INVERSE. An urban ritual for Dresden by the artist Florian Dombois (*1966, Berlin) will take place on 27.10.2019 for the fourth time in the courtyard of the Zwinger in Dresden. The work focuses on the nameless hour 3 – 3 a. m., when the clocks are stopped for one hour and switched from summer to winter time.

Dombois gives an artistic framework to the phenomenon of the given time change and the standstill of analogue clocks. He opens the doors of the kennel and rings in the hour with a 10-minute chime. Dombois’ work can be followed via live stream, which goes online at http://inverse-dresden.eu half an hour before 3 am.
