Annabel Howland’s artistic research weaves a speculative web connecting art, science and finance. In her ongoing project P r o d u c e r s -P a r a s i t e s - H o s t s, such themes as cheating and cooperation, transparency and instability, profit and loss, intermingle with stories of microbial cooperation, dark pools and human debt. This symposium and installation at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam rounds off Howland's long term project.
On April 4th and 5th, 2019, Leiden University Centre for Arts in Society (LUCAS) will be hosting a Graduate Conference on "Animals: Theory, Practice, and Representation." This conference aims to rethink the relationships between humans and animals, in order to examine the ways in which these relationships are defined.
