"The shadow escapes from the body like an animal we had been sheltering [...] and the shadow observes, reflects, and fears that unsheltered freedom

 

Gilles Deleuze, Francis Bacon - The Logic of Sensation

 

On the brink of the 21st century and in an era that is fertile in eschatological narratives and theories about the end of history, crowned by the triumph of Western capitalism, Jacques Derrida coined the word "hauntologie" (Specters of Marx): an ontological manifestation of ideological and cultural specters that haunt our present time and disrupt a linear conception of time.

Inspired by Derrida's concept and anchored on the idea of haunting, Mickael de Oliveira and Nuno M Cardoso joined efforts once again, after Oslo (2015), to create HANTOLOGY, a spectral exercise about the resilience of radical visions and utopian projects that wind up failing and, like ghosts, haunt our contemporaneity.
