About

Metal music can be a symbol of redneckery for some; it can also be a lifestyle, an ironic worldview, or a means of escape from this world. It is a subcultural sign. It is connected to a  certain generation and aesthetics. Metal has an unmistakeable (sometimes even theatrical)  visual language. It can me macho, feministic, or pathetic, but in most cases is aggressive. And  poetic. Metal has avoided all fads and intellectual conceits and countless trends. A pathetic  attitude that is free of cynical humour and self-depreciative irony is hard to market. And this  is also one of the reasons it remains authentic.

The exhibition project entitled Art-Brut-All is an empirical test of the possible cohesion of approaches with which metal subculture operates, principles or strategies in contemporary art, and current social trends.

Even the name of the exhibition project is a play on words. It is based on the name of the Brutal Assault festival, where it was first featured, and from Art Brut, the term for unschooled art, art in its raw form. Even though the exhibiting artists are mostly unschooled, they work with elementary art expression, form, and content. It gives that which under certain circumstances can be seen and heard as brutal and raw the opportunity to be understood and experienced as authentic and original, both on the metal scene and in art culture. The name can then be understood not only as the main slogan of the exhibition, but also as “massive support” for an everyday perception of the world from many angles.
