Product Description

The “Department of Artificial Butterflies (DoAB)” is a part of a larger project that aims to create a Museum of UnNatural History. The Museum will advance its global mission to discover, interpret, and disseminate information about human contemporary cultures, the natural world as we reproduce it and ecology through a wide-ranging program of scientific research, education, and exhibition.

The “DoAB” aims to research animal issues in contemporary art in relation to John Berger's text “Why look at animals” which examines some of the most important concepts in social theory and philosophy such as the action of the gaze, the relationships between humans and animals in society as well as the objectification of the animal and the distancing of the human from the animal.
