The research group Philosophy, Ethology, Politics and Performance (PEPPER) hosts an international research network on the emerging interdisciplinary field of philosophy, ethology, politics and performance. Starting point is the recent politico-philosophical turn in contemporary performance theory and practice. The research group aims to develop a new approach for the way in which performing arts are redistributing the political. This so-called ‘politico-philosophical turn’ also sheds a new light on ethics and ecology, referred to as ‘ethology’.
