Oliver Bulas creates ‘constructed situations’ in which the visitor immerses. He uses performance and prefers to work in the public space. He is wondering if the public space is a place where differences clash and are negotiated. A place where maybe a short flash of social space can incidentally shine up as a utopian moment. His work is a continuing investigation into what constitutes the social and the public spaces in our capitalist times in which everything is exchangeable.
At the moment Bulas is residing in Capacete in Rio de Janeiro. In New Orleans he wants to draw parallels between the two cities in a speculative scenario. Starting from fine art’s appropriation of tribal cultures he will advance these processes into a future in which he imagines it to its most extreme conclusion.
