Animal Performances is an ongoing performance-series that started in Vienna, 2010.
The currently increasing rural depopulation is noticeable not only in the human domain but also the animal realm. Urban space has a lot to offer. An excess of foodstuffs makes the search for nourishment much easier for animals, which has lead, amongst other things, to species diversity becoming richer in cities than it is in the countryside. In Animal Performances, various animals that have immigrated to the city make public appearances and attempt to appropriate the urban space in an absurd fashion.
