Oliver Walker

Oliver Walker (Liverpool, 1980) uses live art, interventions and video to investigate social and political systems. Criticism, humor and innovations are used to analyse and partly re-configure these systems. His ‘Mr Democracy’ project saw the production of a written constitution for the UK outsourced to China, while in ‘Bringing the Market Home’, an African financial index was used to control a lighting circuit in an everyday situation in Berlin. ‘One Euro’, which has been shown widely, is an installation of six simple films each showing an individual working, and each lasting as long as it takes this individual to earn one euro.
