Tales From a State of Shemergency – Olympia Bukkakis – SODA WORKS 2018

Marx remarks somewhere that all great world-historic facts and personages appear, so to speak, twice. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second time as travesty – Olympia Bukkakis, 2018

In Tales From a State of Shemergency Olympia Bukkakis interrogates our relationship with the the past and explores the potential of a number of different storytelling genres in reproducing our societal surroundings. Her research focuses on different ways of displacing the conventions of these genres in order to challenge the conditions by which narratives come into being and structure our lives.
