Duration: 40 minutes
Language: English

Methodology of creating interspecies utopia of the other. The main subject of an artistic/philosophical research is “other” in the context of human figur and “the other” - animal. The hypothesis of the project is inspired by philosopher Tadeusz Sławek and his analysis of being “like an animal”, which is not a process of dehumanization but of finding your inner and true self from under the culture. “To be like an animal” is an indication to search outside of the cultural bounds and cultural systems to undermine power structures which are creating the division between “us” and “them”.
