Radical Adults Productions
Since 2012 Johannes Buss produces works under this name.
Crossing borders between art, design and scenography Buss creates work for different occasions. Showcases vary from exhibitions, theatre, set design & music festivals.
He extracts existing media out of popular, political and commercial culture and alters and recombines them in form of installations, sculptural objects, and spatial design.
