The exhibition Cohabitation – A Manifesto for the Solidarity of Animals and Humans in Urban Space is part of a project by ARCH+ in cooperation with silent green and shows artistic and creative explorations of the ambivalent relationship between animals, huåmans and nature in the urban context as well as perspectives for the revision of prevailing conditions.
The project Cohabitation, curated by Marion von Osten, Christian Hiller, Alexandra Nehmer, Anh-Linh Ngo, and Peter Spillmann, builds a
transdisciplinary and transnational network that connects design approaches in art, architecture, and urban planning with questions of
interspecies solidarity, social justice, as well as a dynamic understanding of ecology and the right to the city. It addresses urban cohabitation
by different species in a variety of formats that are all closely intertwined."
