since 2014 CMUK interspecies collective
CMUK is an interspecies collective that was established in 2014 by the grey parrots Clara and Karl and the artists Ute Hörner and Mathias Antlfinger. The collaborative project of parrots and humans promotes the decentralization of “human animals” as superior creators and opens up the perspective towards an overwhelming productivity by a non-human agency. CMUK works and plays in a transmedia manner, using a variety of materials, processes and contexts. Subtraction, décollage and all sorts of destruction are part of the sculptors’ repertoire. The word CMUK is an acronym composed of the forenames of the founding members: Clara, Mathias, Ute and Karl. It means something like “a little kiss” in Slovene.
