Modernism refers to a spirit that postmodernism doesn’t agree with. Which does ghostmodernism relate to? I say postmodernism, but some people may see this term as “ghost of modernism”. Thus a return to modernism, but recognizing it to be something of the past, therefore never putting the spirit and ideals back of modernism back into action, right?
This is where the value of memory needs to be analyzed. We remember what we want to remember, i.e. we put it in photo albums, own music that enhances nostalgia, etc. We are haunted by that which we don’t want to remember.
