In the context of our project we keep messing around with against speciesism in art we posted this video: Antispekunst 1.
The question is why so few Animal Rights activists discuss and thematize they way in which speciesism displays itself in artworks and why isn’t asked why some artists want to make such arts and why this type of arts even gains a lot of acclaim, fame and positive attention?
Why do other activists blur out questions evolving around speciesism when they appear in contemporary arts? It’s a bit like religion, as a huge cultural factor, is equally being routinely ignored as a source of speciesist thought.
The foundations of that what people consider to be human cure cultural expressions are kept under guard: “human society can’t be that bad in it’s great achivements such as: art, religion, technical progress.”
Why – if it’s not people simply being affrimative of society – do activists fail to see the level of speciesism experiend by nonhuman animals in cultural core institutions and expessions that are deemed to have a great cultural value?
For where does this inability und unwillingness take its impulses I wonder???
