During the workshop the participants will explore the relationship between man and animals through artistic representation, design, and architecture. The process should help us re-evaluate the extremely anthropocentric matrix in which we have shaped the global habitat.
The participants will be focusing on the production of 3D and 2D artefacts, using a series of artworks from the Kunstgewerbemuseum's collection as a basis for their research.
