February 2016: THE LIBRARY A JUNGLE (Expedition No.1)

During this first expedition of the series ‘This Teeming World’ we will rediscover titles from the natural history collection and at the same time – with the audience – observe and discuss how the natural environment is being perceived, interpreted and conveyed in the past and the present. How did our relationship with nature transform over time, how was it mapped and shaped? With cultural historian Erik de Jong and visual artist Martin La Roche.
