Emanuel Mathias - On the Margins of the Field

An in situ exhibition at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig

In Emanuel Mathias' artistic research work “On the Margins of the Field”, the observing field primatologist becomes him- or herself the observed subject of investigation. For this project, Mathias collaborated with about 20 researchers from the Department of Primatology at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, following the traces the researchers left behind from their observational field work in the form of recordings and written documentation. The exhibition is open for external visitors from May 29 to July 19, 2019, on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Deutscher Platz 6, Leipzig).
