Simple as ABC #4:
The Museum of Human Hunting

AUDIO INSTALLATION

2019 / ROBIN vzw

 

What would happen if we were to build a human hunting museum? What would it look like, who would be in there & what would hang on the walls?  

Simple as ABC #3: The Wild Hunt is an audio exhibition that unravels contemporary practices of human hunting. It wonders who is hunting whom and how, who is watching and how clear-cut or reversible such categories are. Based on their intimate knowledge, experts from around the Mediterranean were invited to each contribute one hunting scene to the museum’s collection. In Arabic, Farsi, French and Greek, their voices guide the visitor around the images etched on their retinas.
