The Kunstmuseum Luzern has been transformed into a menagerie! Horses, cows and goats, lions and tigers, eagles and centaurs, dinosaurs and dragons will populate the museum's rooms, but in paintings, drawings, photographs and sculptures. The museum has countless works depicting our animal relatives, both real and mythical. The 2018 Collection Presentation is devoted to the relationship between man and animal, which is often close, but not always simple. How are animals depicted in art and what does this say about our understanding of them? What role do they play in our technological and digital society? Is our treatment of them as pampered pets or mere food species-appropriate? What are the alternatives for a different relationship between living creatures in the future?
