Hauntology, the study of spooks and visitations, looks for things in the presence that exist or do not yet exist, for those unachieved potentials and unfulfilled hopes that make ghosts walk the earth. In this project, defined as a mix of straightforward congress, séance and film shoot, theorists and artists meet to talk about – and with – spirits. Hamlet’s ghost will be there, and the spectre of communism has also been invited. The congress will begin with a key-note lecture by artist/researcher Sibylle Peters, after which irreality.tv will present the Vienna premiere of the first series of EXIT GHOST, which was created during the 2018/19 season in collaboration with Staatstheater Augsburg. On the second day of the congress, ghost voices will sound, places will be scoured for spirits to open the communication with a variety of them, as the boundaries between actual and fictional congress start to blur more and more. Finally, in the evening, a big joint film shoot will throw the congress right out of joints. The future belongs to the spirits!

 

irreality.tv is a platform for participatory web series projects. Using the format of film shoots, irreality.tv creates real-life events and collective actions that we otherwise only see on television and in the movies in urban areas. This artistic strategy of digressing the borders of every-day life is referred to by irreality.tv as soapification. Its most recent co-production with brut is the social-fiction series NIGHTWATCH about life in a world without sleep.

THE HAUNTOLOGICAL CONGRESS will also mark the start of shooting for the second series of EXIT GHOST in the 2019/20 season. As usual, whoever wants to participate is invited to do so – with or without acting or haunting experience. If you would like to be part of the series even after THE HAUNTOLOGICAL CONGRESS, feel free to reach out to irreality.tv at the congress itself or send an e-mail to info@irreality.tv
