Alarm Clock Academy - Online Visitor
A Minus Plato Questionnaire about Time and Awakening

Hello Online Visitor, we are Minus Plato, a collective of artists and classicists, and we would like to ask for a few minutes of your time to fill out this questionnaire about your experience visiting William Kentridge’s installation "The Refusal of Time" (even if it is only virtually by clicking on the link below!)

Did you know that the ancient Greek philosopher Plato invented the first alarm clock in human history? Well, he did. And do you know why? Because he wanted to ensure his students in the Academy were awake in time to attend his riveting lectures!

Anyway, so as not to take up any more of your precious time, let us move on to the questions.

(Disclaimer: your answers may be shared on Wexner Center social media channels)

1. Have you ever visited an exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio, USA? If so, what is the most memorable exhibition you remember seeing at the Wex? If you have never been to or are not currently in Ohio, where are you in the world right now? What time is it there?
Your answer
2. Have you already visited or do you plan to visit William Kentridge’s installation "The Refusal of Time" at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Feb. 3-April 15, 2018? If not, have you seen 'The Refusal of Time' elsewhere in the world? Where and when did you see it?
