The Ooze / Brud / Aditya Mandayam

Roma Publication 329

The Ooze is the twelfth publication in Kunstverein München's 'Companion' series, and corresponds to The Donut of Confusion – a mid-career retrospective by Brud (and also Season Zero of their TV show 'Gewgaw'). Brud is often described as a set of heuristics that gained sentience in the twenty-teens and will self-destruct sometime in the twenty-thirties. Brud focuses their attention somewhere between the stage, the screen, and the eye, to examine the cultural, political, and technological histories of sight (primarily through linguistic and musicological modes) and to expose the hidden structural and ideological precursors to contemporary communication. This 144-page publication contains a compendium of idiosyncratic texts by Aditya Mandayam, reproduced in facsimile from various English-language zines and chapbooks. It also includes new texts about Brud (in English, German, and Polish) by Chris Fitzpatrick, Kees van Gelder, Andrea Liu, and Michal Novotny.

Edited by Aditya Mandayam, with Chris Fitzpatrick, Julie Peeters, and Post Brothers.
