In the frame of the closing event of the exhibition Ghosting by the Vienna-based artist Olivia Kaiser the homonymous catalogue has been presented at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien. Once again, Nik Thoenen and Maia Gusberti took care for the graphic design while Pascal Petignat made the photo documentation of the exhibition. In addition to an introductory curatorial text by Christian Egger, the catalogue that is coedited by Kunst im Traklhaus includes the essay "There, Not There" by the freelance author and independent researcher Arie Amaya-Akkermans.
"In Olivia Kaiser’s exhibition ‚Ghosting,' the reference is to a socio-psychological construction of our times, noticeable only in light of the complex networks of interconnectedness based on exchange and commodification that define human relations. An absence in this context is not merely a quantitative lack of relative presence, but a hierarchical rupture."
Arie Amaya-Akkermans in "There, Not There“
