Our perception of nonhuman animals is shaped by objectification and dominion. We see them as food, trough the bars of the zoos or the microscope in the lab. The work of Leipzig based painter Hartmut Kiewert opposes this anthropocentric view with an other, new perspective, which realise animals as individuals and calls upon the spectators to encounter these sentient social beings with empathy. In his paintings he creates scenarios of a coexistence of humans and other animals on equal footing.

After the exhibition Hartmut Kiewert’s new catalogue will be released by compassion media.

“The position that non-human animals occupy in our cultural imagination is proof for how easy it is to accept the lower status of some beings without even a second thought.”
