LAST AND FIRST MEN. TOWARDS A NEW ANTHROPOLOGY
Drawing on the title of Olaf Stapledon’s breath-taking account of the evolutionary rise and fall of eighteen distinct races of men, Last and First Men. Towards a New Anthropology explores the interplay of anthropological concerns and contemporary art practice.
The exhibition surveys the relationships between documentary and ethnographic study via a body of artists who look to myth, memory traces and the significance of ancestry in relation to the social and cultural organisation of human societies, as well as addressing humanity's shifting and uncertain relationships with technology and the natural world.
