"Why do I know more than other people? Why, in general, am I so clever? I have never pondered over questions that are not really questions. I have never wasted my strength. I have no experience, for instance, of actual religious difficulties..." (borrowed from Nietzsche)
Mit berührenden Bildern und Fotographien von schmerzhafter Schönheit, führt die Künstlerin den Betrachter in die Welt des Tierversuchs ein. Kombiniert mit informativen Textpassagen, enthüllt Milda Bandzaitè die Wahrheit hinter der klinischen Kälte des Tierversuchs: ethische Grausamkeit und wissenschaftliche Absurdität.

Wahnsinnig traurig und berührend - und andererseits bekommt man es gleich mit der Wut zu tun und ist schlichtweg schockiert.
Through my art I try to make people think about the absurdity of many things that were created by mankind. I would like people to think more about their actions by themselves and not to follow the mass blindly. If one chooses to do a wrong thing, it should be done by his/her own will and not just because the rest of humanity does the same wrong thing. I believe that art is one of the ways to make our world and the planet a better place.
Despite the fact that I always criticize mankind, I still kind of liked You, human beings.
I hope that people in Munich liked me a little bit as well and will be looking forward for the next time.
Eine sehr empfehlenswerte Ausstellung mit sehr berührender Kunst von Milda.

Someone pointed out, that it might be unethical to perform experiments on humans, but I disagree. We do not violate any rights of human beings, simply because they have none to violate at all. They are not morally self legislative and cannot possibly be members of any truly moral community or possess rights. Although from time to time I raise those moral questions to myself as well.
There is no harm (only ethics) involved in behaviour studies, but how about studies for medicines, cancer and others? Humans have to be killed for various reasons during those experiments, including the collection of blood or tissues, disposal at the end of an experiment, especially where humans are experiencing pain which cannot be alleviated. It is believed by some scientists that humans are one of the relatively few species to have sufficient self-awareness to recognize themselves in a mirror. Although mirror test really cannot be a reliable source for measuring consciousness. 22 years I observed human race and learned a lot about them. I can tell that there is no big difference between human’s and sheep’s mental abilities.
It is easy to motivate humans during experiments; researches showed that the primary motivators and stimulators are food, easy entertainment toys (like TV) and sexual intercourse. You, human beings, are all the same. But I still find it interesting to observe and experiment on You.
