The Political Animal group was founded by Olga Koroleva in February 2016 and incorporates a monthly reading session and discussion, international exchange and exhibition opportunities for artists, writers, curators, and scientists supporting cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural examination of inter-species relationships. Two satellite groups are based in Dublin and Edinburgh led by Jessica Conway and Tom Jeffreys respectively. In September 2017 the inaugural Political Animal day-long event and symposium took place at The Showroom, London. Off-site collaborative readings have been held with WaterBodies for Whitstable Biennale Satellite Programme, Oana Damir's project at Chisenhale Studios, with Nella Aarne at RCA, and Evening Class for Art Licks Weekend and Guest Projects as part of Edge Effects screening and discussion series co-organised with Rowan Lear of the feminist reading group wrkwrkwrk.
