The singing drag cow Soya presents her first exhibition after appearing at protests, in theaters and at art festivals, on her own full-length album, and on "The Voice of Germany." Planet Moo showcases photographs, video works, masks, and costumes.
The alter-ego of artist and musician Daniel Hellmann, who lives in Berlin and Zurich, Soya blurs the boundaries between male and female, human and cow, and negotiates between a serious desire to change the world and a sense of humor and lightness. She playfully questions the relationship between humans and non-humans, asking what our lives would look like if we stopped cutting others to pieces.
Planet Moo is part of a larger US tour that includes performances, exhibitions and artist talks in Seattle, Houston, Los Angeles, and Kansas City. This exhibition is presented by the Goethe Pop Ups of Seattle, Houston and Kansas City with generous support from the City of Zurich, the Canton of Zurich, and Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Council.
