For Vanmechelen “It is all about diversity”. With his Cosmopolitan Chicken Project, he found a metaphor to reflect on this issue through an artistic-scientific crossbreeding project with chickens. The arena is chaired by the artist himself and tries to link the other four arenas by means of a global perspective on biological and cultural diversity. “I think that every organism is looking for another organism to survive. That’s the driving force of life”, the artist states.
