‘Eco Noir' is a textual and visual exploration of interspecies relations in time of crisis through the works of 34 artists, researchers and writers from around the world. This expanded collaborative reader acts as a cartography for the new cultural, cinematic and artistic strategies we can offer for emancipating our perception from viewing other species merely as subjects for politics of consumption or as objects of fascination. ‘Eco Noir’ shows how relations with other species correspond with ancient tales and rumours, while offering daring and unconventional ways for humans and animals to join for creating a contemporary common story.
The book is edited by Jack Faber & Anna Shraer
