Bunkers, Brutalism & Bloodymindedness: Concrete Poetry

The evening will include a prescreening Q&A with architecture luminary, Graeme Gunn.

ACMI, Fed Square, Melbourne
Free, seating is limited
Tickets can be collected on the day from ACMI

Bunkers, Brutalism and Bloodymindedness: Concrete Poetry is part of a broader Open House Melbourne program called ’What’s the beef with Brutalism?’ – a series of screenings, talks and tours that consider people’s beef with Béton brut, explore the social significance of the style, and consider what is the new, new brutalism?
