“Somewhere, once upon a time, there was a land where animals and humans co-created functions and behaviors.“ Hooman Sharifi opens an island-workshop built in the pond at the House to develop the idea of a country where the division between humans and animals is uncertain. The public is invited to row over and take part. This (post-human?) utopia is turned into a performance by the Impure Company.
