PRESS RELEASE (Please scroll down for German version)

"Hauntonomy" is the latest work of NIKOLAI SZYMANSKI. An attempt to make visible, in the form of an experimental feature film, how - and above all about what - ghosts of the past communicate with us and influence our present time.

SZYMANSKI thus takes up his installation "My Lapis Lullaby" and the film "Ghostshopping" (in spring 2017 at ITALIC). "Hauntonomy" follows traces in works by Ken McMullen, Takashi Ito, John Smith, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch or David Cronenberg as well as in the theoretical/poetic work of Mark Fisher. The screening of "Hauntonomy" at ITALIC is also the premiere of the film.

GERMAN VERSION

"Hauntonomy" ist die jüngste Arbeit von NIKOLAI SZYMANSKI. Ein Versuch, in Form eines experimentellen Spielfilms sichtbar zu machen, wie – und vor allem auch worüber – Gespenster der Vergangenheit mit uns kommunizieren und unsere Jetztzeit beeinflussen.

SZYMANSKI setzt damit an seiner Installation "My Lapis Lullaby" und dem Film "Ghostshopping" an (im Frühjahr 2017 bei ITALIC). "Hauntonomy" verfolgt dabei Spuren in Arbeiten von Ken McMullen, Takashi Ito, John Smith, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch oder David Cronenberg wie auch im theoretischen/poetischen Werk Mark Fishers. Die Aufführung von "Hauntonomy" bei ITALIC ist gleichzeitig die Premiere des Films.
