Video: Getting Hauntological with Scott Hewicker and Larry Rinder

What is hauntology? In this video, author, playwright, poet, and occasional Blook contributor Kevin Killan probes Hauntology co-curators Scott Hewicker and Larry Rinder about the exhibition, on view at BAM/PFA through December 5, 2010.

On Friday, October 29, Hewicker will present a special Hauntology-themed L@TE event, which promises mood-altering musical performances by Indignant Senility, Barn Owl, Jim Haynes, and Marielle Jakobsons; other-worldly projections, many of which have been excavated from the PFA Collection; a ghostly procession by the Theater for Charity; and other mysterious happenings.

The performance will be preceded at 6 p.m. with a discussion with poet and writer David Brazil, Stanford professor of English Terry Castle, and artist and web designer Josh On about the implications of hauntology for visual art and beyond.
