SOS Brutalism - Online Course
SOS Brutalism—Save the Concrete Monsters! is the first-ever global survey of the Brutalist architecture of the 1950s to 1970s. The term Brutalism does not originate from the word “brutal”, but rather “béton brut”– the French term for exposed concrete. Brutalist architecture celebrates rawness and the bare construction. It is exceptionally photogenic and, in recent years, it has reached cult status on Facebook and Instagram.
The Exhibition is co-organized by Jut Art Museum and Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM), based on the collaboration between DAM and Wüstenrot Foundation. "SOS Brutalism - Online Course" is a series of videos to introduce the background and brutalist architecture which lectured by the curators of the exhibition. There are 14 videos in total. Episode 13 is lectured by Oliver Elser in English and supported by Goethe-Institut Taipei.
