My attempt in this short essay is to address the following question: what can history teach practitioners within a field when they seek to create social impact? Now this is a large question with many answers so I aim to rephrase the question within the field of art. The question I pose is: how does understanding historical geography within the conceptions of space and time effect movement? Space and time have been consistent themes within the trajectory of art. My attempt is to address the political and social implications of time and space, and how historical geography allows us to see these structures to facilitate in the creation of a political discourse within the field of art; producing autonomous objects that comment or criticize their effect and affect on the movement and the body.
