A land of milk and honey for chickens. Since shopping is probably human beings’ favorite pastime, might it also appeal to our oldest domestic companion, the chicken? With a twinkle in their eyes, Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger examine not only our consumer behavior but also our relationship to animals. How species-appropriate can species equality be? Their second contribution to HÖHENRAUSCH is just as profound and humorous as Artgerechtes Shopping (Species-Appropriate Shopping): the opulent and atmospheric staging of an offering box.

Gerda Steiner *1967 and Jörg Lenzlinger *1964, have been working as a collective since 1997 and live in a small village in Jura.
