Post Ghost Bust
“‘Post Ghost Bust is an extension of our research publication into a workshop, screening, and symposium, about the figure of the ghost in Asian countries that have been colonized. It opens our questions about ghosts and their link to modernity, mediality, and the collective imagination, to the public.
We are looking at ghosts, not in terms of belief, but in terms of a technology of mediation to stimulate a meta level of society. The narrative of the ghost is deeply tied to each individual community. The ghost has existed as a collective memory or inscription of the past. We attempt to open a possibility of new forms and new interpretations of the ghost as a social mediator. How, then, can we use the ghost as a social medium that is strongly engaged with the local community?
