Kunsthal Rotterdam is launching its own podcast to accompany the exhibition We Are Animals: PETCAST! As soon as we are allowed to reopen, you will be able to discover the animal kingdom of art at the Kunsthal. Over thirty contemporary artists explore the way in which us humans feel drawn to animals, while simultaneously showing the downside of this attraction. An exciting exhibition that forces us to look in the mirror. The language of this podcast is Dutch.
Especially for the Kunsthal, podcast maker Dide Vonk set off to interview experts about the relationship between humans and animals. Why do we think animals are cute of funny? What are the origins of fables and myths in which animals are endowed with human traits? Why is the wolf currently making a gradual comeback to this country? And where does the human fascination for wild nature come from? You can hear about this, and much, much more during the three-episode podcast, the first instalment of which will air this coming weekend.
This first episode features ranger Natascha Hokke who, among other things, will explain about the habitat of the wild wolf, an animal that is slowly, but surely returning to the Netherlands.
