A beastly urban utopia

Three sculptural installations show exemplary places that are deriving from a future where cross-species co-habitation has become a new norm. The objects have been planned in a dialogue with animal experts and scientists and have been created with the idea of a function. Yet, it is a different perspective on the wild animal and a narration about an alternative society that is at the core of the work.
