Sick Attitude. The human-animal relationship in industrial livestock production

Is a humane form of industrial livestock production even possible?

Jean-Baptiste Del Amo’s novel “Tierreich” (“Animaldom”) recounts the fate of a pig-farming family and how a farm develops into a mass-breeding operation. By cruelly exploiting animals as a resource, human beings are becoming increasingly removed from nature. How can this development be stopped through up-to-date agricultural policies? What are its consequences?

The panel will be held in German and French with translation into English.
