No Need To Hunt — We Just Wait For The Roadkill (ed. by Paul Barsch)
with Stephen Lang, Anna Solal, Scott Rogers, Grace Storey, Keiu Krikmann, Michele Gabriele, Penny Rafferty, and Paul Barsch (Ed.)
A growing number of birds of prey wait for roadkill on noisy highways instead of flight hunt in the wild; at least it seems that this is the case. Today's artists feed on cultural roadkill as well. The publication 'No Need to Hunt — We Just Wait for the Roadkill' is a loose compilation of commissioned texts, scientific quotes, and conversations with artists and an ornithologist to shed some light on wild assumptions about art production, animal behaviour, and their possible connections.
