The exhibition taking place in ISBN books + gallery throughout the month of October is based on the collaborative book by Lithuanian artist Marija Nemčenko and Hungarian curator Anna Tüdős. BRUT. Dialogues from an empty space is a publication that addresses both the past and the future of housing estates in Glasgow, and in Europe at large. The publishers wish to encourage a sense of esteem regarding the housing estates, which were built in the late 20th century and value these buildings not only from an aesthetic point of view, but also through understanding the social and political histories inscribed within late modernist architecture. These traditions evolved around the idea of common living, as well as cost-effective building, so that communities, personal stories, memories and experiences become main focus of the publication, and the recent exhibition at ISBN.
