The Importance of Being Anachronistic: Contemporary Aboriginal Art and Museum Reparations focuses on the role of time in contemporary art and introduces anachrony as a method for subverting the colonial archive. The publication takes as its subject Trawlwoolway artist Julie Gough's 'The Lost World (Part 2)' exhibition and intervention in the Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in 2013.
This project is the subject of essays by Gough herself, Dacia Viejo-Rose, Ellen Smith and Christoph Balzar, with photography by Mark Adams and a foreword by Nicholas Thomas. It is introduced by the exhibition's curator, Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll, who also edited this publication. The Importance of Being Anachronistic is a collaboration between the journals Discipline and Third Text.
