Étant Donnés

French experimental, industrial duo by Eric and Marc Hurtado

Étant Donnés is an experimental, industrial duo formed in Grenoble in 1980 by the brothers Eric Hurtado (born in 1959) and Marc Hurtado (born in 1962), who were originally from Rabat, Morocco. The two brothers had chosen both orality and writing, with a clear, semantic word, yet without the burden of grammar. Through them, it is the volume of each word that becomes an object-sculpture, together with the power of their bodies expressing their voices.

They held a performance in the form of a magnified puppet-show at Metabletica, in September 1986.
