With his paintings Harmut Kiewert addresses the relationship between non-human and human animals. He tries to juxtapose the common view on animals and an entirely different one: A new perspective that recognizes non-human animals as individuals, displaying forms of coexistence on equal terms and without oppression and violence. His paintings relativize the solely anthropocentric perspective and enable viewers to encounter these sentient social beings in new empathetic ways.
