Why Listen To Animals?
The possibilities of meaning when we listen to animals and they listen to us
Level 1/225 Bourke St, Melbourne
This experimental project by Liquid Architecture reframes English writer and artist John Berger’s classic 1980 essay ‘Why Look at Animals?’ through the prism of sound and listening. We gather together artists, musicians, scientists and historians to investigate human-animal sound via the dynamics of power, knowledge and value in the pursuit of a new question: ‘Why Listen to Animals?’
In partnership with West Space, Melbourne Fringe Festival, Naturestrip, Australian Indigenous Studies Program at the University of Melbourne. Supported by City of Melbourne
