Ann-Katrine Schmidt Nielsen: “War, Art, and Hauntings. An analysis of haunting in Danish veteran art and literature”
We might say that ‘wars haunt’ in order to designate how they resonate in, influence and shape societies, relations and individuals – even long after official peace agreements have been made. However, what exactly does this mean and how might such haunting appear in art and literature? This article investigates how contemporary remote warfare can be seen as haunting (in) Danish art and literature made by or in close collaboration with Danish war veterans. Through the analyses of the participatory pop music by Peter and the Danish Defence, the novel Mikael by Dy Plambeck, and the collection of poems Så efterlades alt flæskende by Iraq veteran Mikkel Brixvold, three hauntological modes are suggested: a political, a psychological and an affective mode, each accentuating various aspects of such haunting.
