Launch "Between and Beyond – A Posthuman Bestiary"@ DAI ROAMING ON/OFF SONSBEEK'16 transACTION
Friday June 3
11.00 - 12.30 at the DAI, Kortestraat 27 in Arnhem
Open! COOP Academy Publishing Class will launch a printed publication, an offshoot of the research group Between Animals or Beyond Being Human.
A bestiary is a compendium of beasts or a collection of stories providing physical and allegorical descriptions of real or imaginary animals along with an interpretation of the moral significance each animal is thought to embody. This experimental bestiary considers and represents new relationships and entanglements, questioning old hierarchies, crossing boundaries and introducing new subjectivities and narratives. It asks: If ‘man’ is not the measure of all things, what are we becoming? Between and Beyond is a joint project with image and text submissions of students and tutors, and designed by Open! designer Niels Schrader. During the launch at DAI, Kortestraat 27 each ‘ animal’ will be introduced by its creator in a lecture /performance-miniature.
