'In Manchester you go and see people and the TV’s just on permanently,’ he continues. ‘It’s like a family member. You’re having a conversation with someone and there’s this massive TV that’s just talking to nobody—it’s comforting, it’s like grandma sat in the corner of the room. You ask if you can turn it off, and people say: “Oh no, we can’t.”'

"Representations of animals are now omnipresent: on billboards, in newspapers, magazines and television programs and of course hundreds of thousands of images to be reloaded every day on the net. People seem obsessed with animal images. At the same animals are related to conservation programs, genetic experiments, or legal issues often the subject of public controversy. During the last two decades, many artists have the human attitude towards animals repeatedly questioned. Old forms of representation be revised to consider not only the relationship between humans and animals new, but also their own creative practice.

An exhibition by the Fotomuseum Winterthur. Accompanying this is a richly illustrated catalog with essays by Heather Davis, Duncan Forbes, Ana Teixeira Pinto and Slavoj Žižek appears by Spector Books, Leipzig.

Beastly / Beastly is an exhibition of the Fotomuseum Winterthur and curated by Duncan Forbes, Matthias Gabi and Daniela Janser."
