What’s your take on brut?

For two days in May, the most private spaces of brut Wien – the toilets – were occupied by our sound installation Wie stehen Sie zum brut (What’s your take on brut?). We took a magazine questionnaire on “How to handle death well” and replaced the word “death” by “brut” to create emotional, playful and quirky statements about one of the most famous performance venues in Vienna.
Our installation was part of the So weit so brut festival that celebrated the first eight years of brut. We wish you and the brut a sunny and relaxed summer!
