Go Humam Not Ape is a series of portraits of ape-men represented in cinema and television in the 20 century.
The book provides an opportunity to reflect on the animal origin of the human being and on the ape-man as a metaphor of the alien and uncivilised. A quote from Charles Darwin’s book ‘The Descent of Man’ (1871) introduces the images: “In order that an ape-like creature should have transformed into man, it is necessary that this early form, as well as many successive links, should all have varied in mind and body.”
