Simon Faithfull: exploring our relationship with animals

In his artist residency, Simon Faithfull questions the relationships between humans and animals, and our attempts to group the latter in rigid scientific systems.  

Simon’s work ranges from video and digital drawing, to installations and writing. He explores and reports back on his experiences of the world.

For Contagious Cities, Simon wants to challenge how our attempts to categorise animals that we depend on for health leads us to fear them as ‘other’, harbouring disease and surplus to human requirements.

This work will be exhibited at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin from May 2019.
