Yevgenia Belorusets is a journalist, photographer, writer, and recent recipient of the HKW International Literature Prize. Working between Berlin and Kyiv, writing between Ukrainian and Russian, documenting the lives of the displaced and disenfranchised (and even non-human), Belorusets defies typical definition and strict political boundaries.
In MODERN ANIMAL, without judgement or simplification, Belorusets provides intimate revelations of human-animal relationships: how we shape each other, use each other, and, at times, cross the lines that distinguish us from one another. In conversation, she finds the lost and forgotten remains of something pagan, but still irrepressibly modern.
‘Between what you can see and conceive and what is concealed and inconceivable, you will find—an animal.’
