Drawing from primatology, neuroscience and evolution, this lecture provides a commentary on contemporary forms of aggression and predatory behaviour relating to the desire for resources in post-industrial societies. The lecture is delivered by Dr Zira, the chimpanzee psychologist and expert in human behaviour made famous by Planet of the Apes (1968). This performance is part of the Monuments from the Future episode.

Coco Fusco (b. 1960, New York, USA) lives in New York.
