Ghost 2565: Intermission is a screening program that engages with remnants from the 2018 debut of the video and performance series titled Ghost:2561. The inclusion of works by artists from the last iteration creates a link through artistic practice to the forthcoming edition Ghost 2565: Live Without Dead Time, while also tracing the themes and deliberations to be presented this October in Bangkok.

Ghost is an artist-curated video and performance art series that will happen every three years in Bangkok, Thailand. The first edition, Ghost:2561 is curated by Korakrit Arunanondchai and will take place from October 11th–28th 2018.
The Ghost series takes the idea of the “ghost” and expands upon its connotations by looking at the contemporary condition shared by people across the globe. Although each culture has its own concept of “ghosts,” common is the notion that “ghosts” give form and presence to invisible systems.
