19u30: Nina Pope oof the London art collective Somewhere, presents their latest documentary work in-progress: Cat Fancy Club

Invited by Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen – critical designers of the exhibition project Alter Nature: The Unnatural Animal – Nina Pope of the London art collective Somewhere, presents their latest documentary work in-progress: Cat Fancy Club. The film follows a number of cat breeders into their complex, creative and often scientific world, in which breeding for the perfect look is central. A special spot is dedicated to Dr. Leslie Lyons, who ratified the world’s first cloned kitten and the first GFP (glow in the dark) transgenic kitten. Her laboratory – The Comparative Genetics Laboratory – focuses a.o. on the development of genetic tools for companion animals.

The presentation and film clips of Cat Fancy Club are preceded by an introduction by Revital Cohen. In Alter Nature: The Unnatural Animal, Cohen investigates the context and possibilities of designing a living organism without any reproduction organs; an irreproducible domestic animal.
