Animal Shelter, Issue 3

14 × 20.2 × 1.3 cm

Animal Shelter : Art, Sex, Literature : Issue 3

Semiotext(e) is pleased to announce issue 3 of its occasional intellectual journal Animal Shelter, founded and edited by Hedi El Kholti. Fleeting, ephemeral, nondigital, and nonhierarchical, Animal Shelter is, as Alex Gartenfeld wrote in Interview, “a loose collection of texts, sequenced like a mixtape,” focused yet eclectic. Animal Shelter 2 (2012) evoked a world drifting in limbo. The new issue seeks the roots of our present malaise by moving out to places usually considered ‘obscure’ or ‘exotic’: Argentina, the West Indies, Mali, rural Florida. Animal Shelter 3 features fiction, philosophy, poetry, analysis, & interviews, with an accent on archival documents.

In this issue:

A short story by TISA BRYANT on the afterlife of Antiguan slavery

A short story by MICHAEL CARROLL on sex & languor in Key West

JEAN EUSTACHE in conversation with Wade Novy

“We learned the terms animal ‘kingdom’ and vegetal ‘kingdom’ in school. We must consider other kingdoms, other histories, other reasons alongside our own. I remember that for a long time we thought that certain human populations were not fully human. The Indians discovered by the Spanish, who were brought to Valladolid, were at the center of a great controversy: are they human? People who were well-born and cultivated asked themselves the question . . . To return to animals, no saint has ever denigrated them. All the greatest saints included animals in their great love. The role of poetry, in the largest sense of the term, is to remind us of this.”

—Pierre Guyotat
