Abstract: This paper aims to provide insight into several relevant works of prominent researchers who challenge the term ‘contemporary’ trying to understand the time in which we live and the time in which we create. By presenting a comparative study of texts, this article seeks to understand the concept of time and shape (of representation/manifestation) in the context of contemporariness. from different points of view regardless of the perspective chosen in art or philosophy, etc. As a linguistic form, the term ‘contemporary art’ originates from the 20th century. However, in terms of its meaning, art has always been ‘contemporary’ at the time in which it was generated. We can only observe the works of the past as artefacts, with a contemporary point of view, trying to put them in the right place today.
