“The anticipated beauty of Brehm’s Animal Life stems from its way of describing animals as they are seen through the bars of a zoological garden, even, and above all, when quoting reports by fanciful explorers on life in the wilds. The fact, however, that animals really suffer more in cages than in open range, that Hagenbeck does in fact represent a step forward in humanity, reflects on the inescapability of imprisonment. It is a consequence of history.”
Theodor W. Adorno: Minima Moralia, 1950.
