As part of Ghost Modernism
Quartair Gallery, Den Haag, The Netherlands
Ghost Modernism started off as a pun, a funny turn of phrase that came in the middle of the night which struck a deeper chord. It spoke to a longing to revisit the idealism of the modernist era and a desire to see what relevance, if any, the ideas of utopia and universalism had to our contemporary situation. For us, Ghost Modernism is not the next stage in a linear evolution so much as the creation of a temporary space where we can think differently. It is a place where we can reclaim the utopian hopes of Modernism informed by the contextual critiques levied by Post-Modernism.
