About this product
- DescriptionIn their witty and polemical cultural analysis, art and architecture historian, Valentina Sonzogni, and philosopher, Leonardo Caffo, explore a myriad a series 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 nhuman 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.
