Lightning Talks & Discussion on “Migration”

Midissage of the Exhibition „Anima Mundi“ with George Butler

Abstract:

Humans migrate, animals migrate – “migration” is a central theme in both human societies and animal populations, deserving of observation and analysis from a variety of perspectives. Researchers at the Zukunftskolleg focus on aspects of migration different from those under scrutiny at the Cluster of Excellence “Politics of Inequality”, its counterpart “Collective Behavior”, and the Cultural Studies Research Center.

How intriguing to investigate all these different aspects under the umbrella of a joint series of events! A number of short research talks (“lightning talks”) and an exhibition of works by George Butler will form a central part of this joint effort. As an artist, George Butler includes human as well as animal migration in his take on “migration” as a concept, highlighting the interactive elements of both.
