We have been asked if brillantin☆s is a collective, a group, a sect, or something else. We reiterate that first and foremost we are friends, because that’s how we like to work. Everything we do is because we enjoy it. The brillantin☆s started by being virtual (pandemic babies). Sharing on IG our favorite artists and songs. Now we are hybrids: digital but also tangible. We demand that art, drawing, music events be FUN, with a special focus on gender studies (we don’t want no machit☆s abusers☆). We want to break with stiffness and hierarchies, we want to talk about and do what concerns us and moves us.
