The Art of Assembly
VI: Assembling More Than Humans (Radha D‘Souza, Sibylle Peters & Florian Malzacher)
/

In 2019 Sibylle Peters devised a project called Animals of Manchester (including humanz) for which she tried to install a zone of interspecies equality in a park. Live artists, animal rights activists, researchers, kids and a number of species present in Manchester worked together to imagine and rehearse an alternative version of the city: How would it look like, if all species – including humanz – had the same rights?
Of course the project was destined to fail its hugely ambitious principle in many ways. However – to strive for it in a specific and limited space and time made everybody learn a lot about what would have to be done to actually get there. Since then the pandemic has made it very clear to us that the monocultures of humankind are coming to an end. Humans finally became as dangerous to each other, as they have been for all other species all along.
