INPUT-WORKSHOP ON ANIMAL BIOGRAPHICS
Chair: Anne Hölck
How do animals participate in and contribute to historical, social and cultural processes and how can their individual experiences be imagined, pictured, recorded? The workshop introduces artistic researches on animal biographies and their (co-)authorship in it, that will be commented on by artist’s statements. Inspired from her background as a theatremaker and her conviction of the agency of animals in cultural processes Anne Hölck invites the participants to try-outs of the creative techniques mapping, reenactment and storytelling as approach to animal perspectives.
