Pepsi, cola, water? 

de Tom Bogaert


“Pepsi, cola, water?” is a research- and visual arts project about the life and work of Sun Ra, the legendary jazz pioneer, bandleader, mystic and philosopher. The project focuses on Sun Ra’s concerts in Egypt in 1971 and consists of a series of exploratory works with public outcomes illustrating stages of work-in-progress. The resulting work will take the form of performances, jazz concerts, a publication, an exhibition at Medrar for Contemporary Art in Cairo and a video shot on location in Egypt in which Bogaert follows a local tour guide on a fictitious ‘Sun Ra Pyramids Tour.
