Inspiring people to re-imagine the structures that govern their lives and defying usual understanding of meaning and belonging, this world to come is run via a new economy of government- COMMUCRACY. But what is Glooptopia? What is Commucracy?
Oozing Gloop will go on an epic trip to find this out.
They will travel to abandoned islands, halls of history and places of family legacy to find psychoactive solutions for psychopathetic citizens trapped behind the very screens that are there to help them communicate! From the highest to the lowest Oozing Gloop will seek to link the universal to the particular to revive the democratic impulse and pose the communist hypothesis.
This project is a direct challenge to the notion that people with Autism “struggle with social imagination” and also to the simple fact it’s easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism. We have a wealth of apocalyptic omens, disaster movies and critique; but zero 21st century post-capital-culture. Oozing Gloop defies this with revolutionary zeal and determination to open radical new spheres of imagination and fantasy!
Oozing Gloop is the only disabled artist in the UK using drag in conjunction with chaos magic to engineer public political spectacle. In their unique brand of “queer alchemy” the personal is political and everything a body experiences is used to challenge the profane geometry that stops those experiences being better.
