Can you draw ghosts? And why are we actually afraid of them? We know them since our childhood, they flit through our memories, fill creepy, abandoned places and look at us in the mirror. People have known them at all times, past and present.

In the current issue of SPRING magazine, the 16 illustrators draw ghosts both beloved and forgotten. They take us through analog and digital ghost towns, deal with the ghost of capitalism and the ghostly in emotions. They try to capture and make visible the ghosts and demons that haunt us in quiet hours, hoping thereby to take away some of their creepiness. And they wonder where the ghosts come from - and why they ultimately never let us go.

With a foreword by Karen Köhler.

SPRING was founded in 2004 in Hamburg. Since then, every summer a new volume of the anthology is published, which combines the different works from the fields of comics, illustration and free drawing into one topic each. Since the beginning, the group consists exclusively of women and has become a solid and important network for female illustrators in Germany.
