Énergie Animale

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review


Tiger slippers or feather hats, the silhouette of an alpine procession or a porcelain cat: designers have always used animal materials and forms to create artistic worlds of images and objects. Their handmade or industrial objects, graphics and photographic series tell stories of how we approach animals and the roles they play — from the dreaded wild animal through the farm animal to the beloved domestic pet. Sometimes even mythical creatures may be found and enrich the creative diversity of designs. The exhibition explores animals on the human body, in living areas, and on the plate and addresses current themes like species extinction or veganism. A sanctuary and a parcours invite young animal lovers to explore and design for themselves.

Julia Lohmann contributed Snow-whites to the exhibition.
