It is a long time since this moment is a speculative imagining of how we might understand our relationships and ways of being in the world against a backdrop of rapidly shifting ecosystems, capital and labour. These changes can no longer necessarily be called ‘progress’. As our environment deteriorates, so too does humanity’s constructed notions of the body, the self, and the human as distinct from our ecologies, our technologies, and other creatures. The artists featured examine how interrelated systems of bodies—human and nonhuman— may interact and inform one another. In this way, they reimagine our relationship to the past, present, and future of the world. It is a long time since this moment explores our anxieties around the survival of life on Earth and our future possibilities of connections with other beings, objects, and environments.
