Montserrat Gardó Castillo and Petr Hastik are currently developing the piece BRUTOLOGY at the invitation of the Emscherkunstweg. In preparation for the site-specific performance, which will be staged for the first time on 3 September 2022 on the Emscherkunstweg in Dortmund-Huckarde, four virtual road movies will take place in April.

In the online sessions, scheduled for Friday, 15 and Saturday, 16 as well as Friday, 22 and Saturday, 23 April at 8 pm each, participants can expect a virtual car ride through brutalist spaces and landscapes. In BRUTOLOGY. AN ONLINE ROADMOVIE, Montserrat Gardó Castillo & Petr Hastik will explore the rich heritage of Brutalist architecture in the Czech Republic, Catalonia and the Ruhr region. The guided journey becomes increasingly unusual: in a kind of group hypnosis, the ghosts of the past are finally summoned, the remnants of the dreams of progress, expansion and social justice that once defined the concept of Brutalism.

The sessions will be held in English. Registration at brutology@emscherkunstweg.de is required. The event is free of charge.

A production by Montserrat Gardó Castillo & Petr Hastik in co-production with FFT Düsseldorf, supported by the Kunststiftung NRW, the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the NRW Landesbüro Freie Darstellende Künste.
