DOGS is a research project started in 2017. It examines different approaches to the co-existence with dogs. Looking at various ways of living together with dogs in diverse geographical contexts the project furthermore looks at the personal transformation of Farok – a Belgian shepherd, who was never socialised with other dogs – and Benjamin Egger. It documents the development of their relationship and the varied approaches of the consulted experts during the process of socialization.
