Coexist

Donna Conlon is a Panama-based artist who often uses the relation between man and environment in her work. In her short film "Coexist" we get a close-up look at leaf cutter ants carrying political and institutional symbols like those seen in flag parades. The friction between the self oranised ant colony, based on evolutional strategies ratherthan on law and order, and the political symbols they carry, brings up questions on the issue of power and survival priciples. The revolution is here, it's now and it's green!

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
