Frieze presented the UK premiere of Observations of Predation in Humans: A Lecture by Dr. Zira, co-commissioned with Liverpool Biennial. Drawing from primatology, neuroscience and evolution, the lecture provided a commentary on contemporary forms of aggression and predatory behaviour relating to the desire for resources in post-industrial societies. The premiere took place in the auditorium at Frieze London on Thursday 6 October.
