Necromancy is about subversive imagination, realized as an immersive VR-performance, about young artist, whose work was banned by the state in the seventies, and who wanted to dream up an alternate reality for themselves through artistic work. For how long is it possible to create a separate universe under a dictatorship? If we must leave our home country as refugees, can we connect to other cultures?
