The Oceans Academy of Arts (OAOA) is an amorphous artist collective that Ola Vasiljeva founded. It functions as a vessel for ideas about art and ways of showing art works. Depending on each project, we are interchangeable as artists, collaborators, curators or viewers.

"The urge to create OAOA grew from my own dissatisfaction with the way that art institutions were displaying my work and the context it was often placed in. I felt the need to create a new independent structure which would serve as a platform for my creative practice. I shared these ideas with some friends who had a similar approach to art and we formed OAOA.

At first OAOA did not have any physical body, it was a rather ambiguous website that contained very little information about the project, yet functioned as a sort of a visual manifesto.. There were somewhat random images of our artworks presented in a seemingly ''curated" order. Later I decided to translate this manifesto into a publication: OAOA zine, which I continue to publish annually. The zine takes the shape of a small magazine, sometimes a poster, sometimes a small book. " -Ola Vasiljeva

 

This zine is the N°3.

Contributors of the zine : Edgar Heiss, Ola Vasiljeva, B.G. Reivax, Marianne Vierø, John Hey, Malin Svensson
