In the cross-media installation Bululú, a former women's prison in Berlin was occupied by a multi-channel film and sound work. In the main hall, a fictional documentary film was shown, depicting episodes from the lives of Fehr's various alter-egos. In four differently furnished prison cells, each character was given their own space for expression through sound, visual art, and text. Each cell had its own loudspeaker, which together created a 6-channel sound composition that ran in sync with the film. Where otherwise prison cells stand for demarcation and punishment, here the cells became instruments of an orchestra that complemented each other in their interplay without losing their own identity.
