Art and architecture themes at the symposium.
‘Scoping and visibility’ gives headway to an ongoing debate about the representation of animal presence – scale, size and intention. ‘House training’ explores the spatial, social and physical limits of our relations with animals and animality at the domestic scale. ‘In common’ examines the social and political logics of public spaces both physical and ethereal, shared with other creatures. ‘Marking territories’ considers how modes of production and representation shape animal space at wider territorial scales. ‘Going feral’ investigates human-animal behaviours which counter the order of things.
