Actually, it’s clear to all of us: our consumer behavior has been ecologically unsustainable for a long time. But instead of looking seriously for alternatives, we accept factory farming so that our daily piece of meat is always available. To follow the latest trends, we wear clothes that are produced under conditions unfit for humans and animals. For our recreational pleasure, we visit zoos where animals are kept far away from their natural habitat.

For the project HIDDEN – Animals in the Anthropocene, 40 photographers have joined forces, including some of the world’s best-known wildlife photojournalists, such as Daniel Beltrá, Aaron Gekoski and Britta Jaschinski. With their photographs, they want to pay attention to this painful subject and raise awareness about the deplorable living conditions animals endure every day.

A closer look at industrial agriculture, the fashion and entertainment industries, research and fishing, reveals the cruelty to which animals are subjected on a daily basis. The belief that we can use certain species for our needs is ingrained in us: we capture and imprison them, wear their skin, eat their flesh and experiment on their bodies in the name of science. How is it that we make such distinctions between domestic and farm animals?

We know that what we see is wrong.

360° TOUR
From now on the exhibition HIDDEN – Animals in the Anthropocene can be experienced online! Using state-of-the-art technology, we have created a hybrid between exhibition space and virtual presentation that offers a unique visitor experience. Thanks to the technically innovative implementation and the high-resolution image quality, visitors can experience the exhibition almost as if you were there – from home or anywhere else in the world. All photography and multimedia stations can be controlled individually. In addition to an excellent overview of the exhibits, the 360° tour offers in-depth background information by means of audio, film and text elements. The enlargement function allows the images to be studied in detail. You can access the tour via the link https://fhochdrei.org/360

As a non-profit organization, we finance our analog and digital exhibitions and events exclusively through admission fees, donations, membership fees and project funding.
