Go Human Not Ape is a book made of a series of appropriated portraits of ape-men represented in cinema and television in the twentieth 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 uncivilized. A quote from Charles Darwin’s 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.”
