Today, throughout the world, the organization of movements, groups and collectives abound in the face of political, social and economic uncertainty. The social experience in the forging of a movement, of a utopian thrust, is animated and problematized by such contingent processes as improvisation and speculation. These inherently social activities suspend and navigate normative procedures of judgement, decision-making and valuation by rejecting established modes of governance in favour of localized heuristic processes. The exhibition, ‘The Ghost of a Movement’, produces a space in which the generative and indeterminate processes of developing emergent forms of experience and sociability beyond the dominant order can be considered in relation to collective deliberation, speculative inquiry and the political valence of science fiction as well as immanent perceptual and conceptual gestalts.
