The Ghostly Commission

To celebrate the launch of the International Ghost Appreciation Society we’re looking to commission a piece of artwork to be unveiled at our launch event, and stashed lovingly forever in our archive.

As an open-minded and international ghost hunting society, we’re not prescriptive about medium or format. We’re open to poems, paintings, sculptures, films, interpretive dances and more.

The goal is to create something interesting, memorable and which can help define the identity of our nascent ghost hunting society.

The selected artist will be paid £100. The piece will be unveiled at our launch event in January 2023, which will take place in Edinburgh. As such, ideas from local artists are particularly encouraged.

Is it possible to distinguish between art and the artist? Do only meticulous cleaners safe us from unsubstantial art? How free can art be? Does the art scene need a radical clearing out? Is Cancel Culture a threat to art or are we all just too sensitive?

re:visionism is an exhibition that addresses those questions and the topic of historical revisionism from an interdisciplinary and boundary transcending point of view inspired by the debate initiated by Moshtari Hilal & Sinthujan Varatharajah about Germany's Nazi background, which manifests in the wealth of German corporations and institutions.

The exhibition aims to offer a critical debate about artists who profited from historical revisionism and whose works and lives are still trivialized and glorified.
