Ghosting, the ghost-like disappearance of people, means breaking off, disrupting and separating ongoing relationships, predominantly online. Yet ghosting goes far beyond broken chat histories: ghosts of the past are part of our present. They tell stories with open endings, mix up different times and revive places that are otherwise forgotten. How can the haunting of the past make us transcend the boundaries of the present – and how do relationships come to life with it, that create new readings of the future?
The global dimensions of the programme have a local starting point: the changed focus of the foundation due to the renovation of the historically significant former soldiers’ home of Fritz Höger. GHOSTING addresses this institutional transformation through a cross-disciplinary programme that takes up the social, political and poetic effects with which ghosts of the past are conjured up in situations of upheaval – and thus places the supposedly remote, placeless or queer at the centre of the action.
