History(s) of MEANTIME sets out to explore the dynamics of practice that established the experimental art-space MEANTIME, to create a more comprehensive understanding of the context and conditions that affected the arc of its existence and reflect on its catalysing influence and legacy of informal knowledge and spontaneity. The document will provide no definitive conclusions, in part because the nature of the project resisted fixed categorisation; a radical opportunist, it adapted and reformed at will. Instead, the document intends to initiate a dialogue that calls on some of the people who were present in the realisation of MEANTIME, who were part of the dreaming, to share their thoughts, memories and mis-remembrances; no single truth, many truths. Others have taken the request into new lines of thought and enquiry. Each section reflects on aspects relating to the idea of the project, largely without reference to individual residencies or projects that took place, which are documented elsewhere. This document has provided an opportunity to reinhabit a moment in time, if a moment can last for seven years. Part review, part revision, part exposition, this is a story about a space in time.
