The Ooze 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.
Edited by BRUD, Chris Fitzpatrick, Aditya Mandayam, Julie Peeters, and Post Brothers.
Texts by Anonymous, Chris Fitzpatrick, Kees van Gelder, Andrea Liu, Aditya Mandayam, and Michal Novotný.
