Immersive Arts
Empire of Oil Project Follow Up

Short thesis

The Berlin based artist group Costa Compagnie took up the subject of oil and conducted interviews in Norway and Iraq, while filming with a 360°-camera, in order to use the footage in an immersive cyclorama-stage and a VR-film. At re:publica 18 the artists will present a summarizing video of their performance series EMPIRE OF OIL and also engage in dialogue with their audience about war and art, crisis and consumerism, VR and reality.


In this meetup we would like to present the project to a broader audience, discuss related questions while also following up some of the results of the referring talk.
