index: bjorn christiansen (superflex) + ricardo gomes (kwy) + inês pereira rodrigues

interspecies relationships

11 May



free admission



Bjørnstjerne Christiansen, from the artistic collective SUPERFLEX, and Ricardo Gomes, from the architecture studio, have teamed up again, this time for the 2024 INDEX Biennial. They have created the Fish Cube, a sculptural installation that explores the relationship between human and animal coexistence and questions a world constructed in an exceedingly human-centric way. Based on the premises of this work and the SUPERFLEX’s Interspecies Café podcast, Inês Pereira Rodrigues, a PhD in Philosophy and a researcher in the field of relational ecology, will host a conversation with a particular focus on interspecies relationships.
