With Geistervölker, meaning “ghost populations”, Kunsthalle Wien presents a comprehensive solo exhibition of Austrian artist Ines Doujak (b. 1959, lives and works in Vienna), revolving around histories of pandemics, transmission of viruses, and their relation to global trade and to the current economic, microbiological, and ecological crises.

This exhibition is both a continuation and a newly visualized manifestation of Doujak’s work as an artist as well as an archivist, a researcher, and collector. The textiles, videos, papier-mâché sculptures and installations on display form a narrative linking global chains of economic production, consumption, and exploitations and the present pandemics, as well as the recurrent patterns that cause and spread pandemics historically.

Geistervölker will be accompanied by a series of live performances centering around Transmission: A series of five Podcasts on Disease and Pandemics in a Distorted World (2021). The episode VACCINE marks the beginning.
