An Art for the Other

The Animal in Philosophy and Art

Leonardo Caffo and Valentina Sonzogni

Foreword by Steve Baker, Translated by Sarah De Sanctis

In their witty and polemical cultural analysis, art and architecture historian Valentina Sonzogni and philosopher Leonardo Caffo explore a myriad of visual, ethical, and cultural issues relating to the idea of animality. In twenty-one playful but passionately argued letters to each other, Sonzogni and Caffo propose a change of attitude toward nonhuman animals among advocates, artists, and citizens, particularly in how other-than-human life is presented and re-presented in the visual tradition. Ranging widely across continental philosophy, art theory, and cultural criticism, and with nearly thirty illustrations, An Art for the Other is a fresh and compelling work of contemporary ideas from two of the freshest critical theoreticians in Europe today.
