The Postmodern Animal - Word+Praxis
December 8, 2004 8:00PM - - -
A release party for the monograph Animality, published in conjunction with Perforations (www.pd.org/topos/perforations.html).
Animals tell us about how culture positions itself in relation to nature. Part of Animality as a publication and a release party event will explore how cultures represent and jostle animals and so reveals our values. Yet, animals are not simply manipulated in culture; they have a life of their own. The other side of this project explores our points of entry into the animals' sense of world. Several artists and scholars will present brief rifts and various takes on animality alongside art, music, and interactive installations that explore problems of representing the animal.
