Since the early 1970s, Günther Brus has cooperated with other artists. In his collective works, mostly cyclical works arise as a reaction to a prompt made by the other, manifesting itself as a reflection both in terms of form and contents.

 

 

Thanks to generous donations made by Günter Brus and Dominik Steiger, the BRUSEUM now owns the almost complete cycle Jeden jeden Mittwoch. Ein Zwoman or Every Every Wednesday. A Novel in Two (1974) by these two artists, which represents an early picturepoem. Every Wednesday one artist received post from the other in the form of a drawing in A4 format with a text and pictures, to which the other artist reacted. In this way over 100 sheets were created.

 

Moreover, collective works with Arnulf Rainer, Jörg Schlick, Otto Muehl and Hermann Nitsch are shown from the museum’s collection, added to by loans from other collective projects, including those with Christian Ludwig Attersee and other artists of the younger generation, from the 1970s to the present day.
