Taking place in the context of the thematic exhibition “Ape Culture”, curated by Anselm Franke and Hila Peleg at HKW, the workshop will focus on modes of interaction between science and art, with a special thematic emphasis on “Ape Culture” and the human/animal relationship. Among other questions, it will address how scientific topics and methodologies can be approached by curators.
