Other Editions of This Title:
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.
