Gesellschaftsspiele: The Art of Assembly

A Series by Florian Malzacher & brut Wien

Art of Assembly

Whether in Tunis, Cairo, Madrid, or Lisbon, in Athens, New York, London, or Istanbul, in post-Fukushima Tokyo, in the midst of Niemeyer’s iconic parliamentary architecture in Brasilia, under the umbrellas of Hong Kong, or on the streets of Minneapolis: social and political movements of recent years have often been characterised by their search for alternative forms of gathering, of arguing and making decisions, of negotiating community and society. The potential of these assemblies lies in more than just the demands they put forward; many of them change reality merely by practicing radical models of democracy.

Guests at brut

brut Reihe

One guest, two tables, 110 questions. A genially merciless interviewer provides insights into a country’s mentality. Guests at brut is a new regular series created by Graz-based company Theater im Bahnhof. In each episode, three different local personalities are thoroughly probed in 30-minute interviews. Pia Hierzegger asks them randomly drawn questions ranging from the current political situation to personal issues, thus unfolding a vivid selection of greatly varying insights, views and perspectives.

brut Extras

 

The brut Extras series including regular roundtables, Q&As, walks and talks provides various opportunities for dialogues and encounters. Audiences, colleagues, artists and neighbours get together to have conversations, give feedback and exchange views. It’s processes, not results that count for the Extras!

Handle with care

Artist talks and insights into rehearsal processes

brut Extras

The Handle with Care series grants sneak peeks into processes of artistic creation, experimenting with new formats and creating spaces for talking and the exchanging of views. Artists get the chance to try out parts of their work in front of a small audience, to receive feedback and to turn spectators into accomplices.

Out and about

City tours with artists

brut Extras

For Out and About, artists and the audience fan out to explore the city. This can include anything ranging from joint walks to meetings at special places and strolls in shopping streets. These city tours can lead off beaten tracks, question established views of the city and open up new perspectives.
