To catch a ghost

The occult experiences something of a boom during times of crisis and is thus present in all media at the moment. For what appears inexplicable tends to fascinate and unnerve us in equal measure. The Museum für Neue Kunst is also taking a look at the topic. However, were the ghosts that need to be caught actually created by artists? Or are they figments of our imagination? Reality starts out in our brains. A figurine is transformed into a mystical being through our imagination. What was a broom a minute ago can suddenly turn into a creepy, ghostly object. This show plays on expectations, but also our secret fears and nebulous intuitions. Although we cannot see it, is there nevertheless something there we can only feel? How do we go about proving what we perceive?
