From monumental and robust constructions, symbols of domination and control, to decadent and labyrinthine housing blocks located in peripheral neighbourhoods. Different forms of architecture act as mechanisms of oppression and alienation, leading to states of confusion, disturbance, and an inevitable loss of individual and collective identity.
Based on found footage, Brutal Moods explores how cinema has represented Brutalist buildings in its fictional stories, and to what extent it has contributed to generate the different dystopian imaginaries with which this architectural movement is associated today.
