Riot of the Privileged!


OPPRESSED BY PRIVILEGE and PRIVILEGED BY OPPRESSION are the names of the two bands which performed their inaugural concert at the Ausstellungsraum Klingental in Basel on June 14th 2017 – simultaneously.

Previous to any rehearsals and in accordance with democratic principles, the public was invited by an Open Call to submit original texts in response to the respective band names.

The two bands, consisting entirely of privileged white members, use the submissions as the raw material to adapt and interpret musically and present on stage. All original texts are compiled within a publication published by Stingray Editions.

OPPRESSED BY PRIVILEGE / PRIVILEGED BY OPPRESSION is a collective project initiated by Daniela Brugger & Vera Bruggmann
