Mara-Daria Cojocaru 


The video is available in German.

Philosophy lecturer and writer Mara-Daria Cojocaru ties in with themes from Yalda Afsah’s exhibition. The contribution ANIMAL LOVE deals with the topic of the care of humans towards animals from the point of view of animal ethics. Is the subject of animal love a precondition of the scientific study of animals? To what extent can one speak of an emphatic intertwining of humans?
