The Tulse Luper Suitcases

Description (in English): 

The story starts in 1928 with the finding of Uranium in Colo- rado, and ends in 1989 with the fall of the Berlin Wall. It tells the adventures of a man, Tulse Luper, a writer and project-maker who spent his life “under lock and key” in several parts of the world and archived his life in 92 suitcases. Tuned to the author’s characteristic style, it is an encyclopedic project, but one that responds in a unique way to the stimuli of new visual languages and narrative formats. Because of this, it is accomplished in different media (a television series, numerous DVDs, movie trilogy, VJing performance, web site, online game, a library of 92 books, various theater events and exhibitions).
