Habitus vs. HabitatPrimaten

Habitus vs. Habitat Claudia & Julia Müller - Habitus vs. Habitat
Based on observations of primates in a zoo and accompanied by an expert's text, the drawings by Claudia and Julia Müller document animals' behavior. Through the notions of play, manipulation of objects, and "performance," this artists' book, designed by Christoph Keller, intertwines drawings, texts, and photographs in an allegorical reading of monkeys' activities as a somewhat art-related form.
The publication is part of the series of artist's projects edited by Christoph Keller.
Born 1964 and 1965, Claudia and Julia Müller live and work in Basel.
Edited by Christoph Keller.
Text by Jörg Hess.
