Tamara Mellon

Those who are truly contemporary, who truly belong to their time, are those who neither perfectly coincide with it nor adjust themselves to its demands. They are thus in this sense irrelevant. But precisely because of this condition, precisely through this disconnection and this anachronism, they are more capable than others of perceiving and grasping their own time. Naturally, this noncoincidence, this “dys-chrony,” does not mean that the contemporary is a person who lives in another time…” – Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben – What Is the Contemporary?
