Project Details


. Playing with ghosts pursues the hypothesis that playful modalities are affectively serious ways of world-making. Art allows new worlds to emerge and become palpable and creates spaces for new affective encounters between socially and culturally diverse groups. This project’s contribution lies in the exploration of affective ambivalences in decolonial contemporary art as more affirmative modes of engagement that could provide a corrective to the critical modes of critical heritage studies to which postcolonial and decolonial theories subscribe.
