Donna Haraway summarises the coexistence of different species using the term companion species. She assumes that these can only develop in relation to each other. Humans, for example, are constantly co-existing with countless other organisms. The “Month of the Macaque” aims to fetch this multispecies society into the visible sphere: While taking a hot bath in a specially built bathhouse complete with a stove, bathers will enter into co-existence with creatures that are moving outside their human field of vision. These will be “captured” using video wildlife traps and projected onto the bathhouse over a period of 44,460 minutes.
The “Month of the Macaque” will be accompanied by, among other things, bathing evenings for small groups as well as musical, performative and discursive programmes in and around the bathhouse. For more information, please visit www.monatdesmakaken.org.
