Living with Humans

How to look at animals. This sentence from John Berger’s essay was fundamental in preparing an issue that tries to grasp the theme of species coexistence in a way that breaks established stereotypes about the usual separation of the human world from the animal world. For animals are always present here; it is only our relationships with them that change over time. Although we place ourselves alongside them in the system of animal species, we strive to distinguish ourselves on many levels – political, cultural, spiritual and others. The thematic part of this issue is devoted to tendencies in art that upset, cover, or shift these planes towards a consciousness of how all livings things belong together.
