🐖 PIG RESPONSE PROJECT 🐖, is a curatorial initiative for practicing careful pig-human relations. It has been set up in response to the ASFV pandemic affecting pigs all over the globe and works as ever-branching-off space for artistic, empathetic research and down-to-earth porcine speculation🌏.
❔ just wondering… is a collective of three individuals creating short animated essays against the status-quo. Drawing from posthumanist and antispeciesist theories, as well as many other approaches from philosophy, social sciences, and activist movements, they aim to make knowledge more accessible through audio-visual storytelling. Their work is inescapably political and speculative. Aron Nor is a researcher, artivist, and filmmaker, Mina Mimosa is a visual artist and activist, and M. Martelli is a writer and activist-scholar. https://www.justwondering.io/
