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 is dedicated to the question, which scientific perspectives man uses to classify the animal world. What approaches and distinctions can be identified here? To what extent does the division into species and the dualism between humans and animals also present problems?
