On Kawara: One Million Years is one of the best-known works by Japanese conceptual artist On Kawara (°1933). He noted down two million years in 20 volumes, one million years back in time [Past], and one million years into the future [Future]. In a closed, glazed space in the Horta Hall a man and a woman take turns to read the years out loud. This way, the whole process documents the passing of time. It is the first time that On Kawara’s work is performed in Belgium. Anyone can sign up to participate in the performance.
