Oracle of Uljanovsk (2015)

Interactive Installation at ‚Park Druschba‘ - the former park representing the friendship of Soviet republics.

In the former park of friendship in the city of Uljanovsk (the city of birth of Wladimir Lenin,) KUNSTrePUBLIK builds an oracle.
Placed in the compound of the former Soviet republic of Uzbekistan, KUNSTrePUBLIK is using the existing decaying structure of the former pavilion and viewing platforms and turns them into an arena. The audience is invited to pose questions towards the oracle by sending text messages to a given mobilephonenumber. Those political and private inquiries are read aloud by a neutral computer voice and can be answered in the discussion, or by anonymous responses via text message.
