Gernot Wieland: Depression in Animals (2016–)


Originally presented as a TED Talk in 2016, this ongoing lecture performance was then adapted and presented by Wieland as part of the public programme of OGR Turin, in June 2018, with a translation in Italian.

‘Depression in Animals deals with the construction of human identity determined by the exclusion of the other – namely the animal. Accompanied by projections, the lecture examines the relationship between humans and animals and its history of control and power, while it digs into personal, absurd yet touching stories about zebras, monkeys, dogs, and potatoes.’ Gernot Wieland
