Contemporary artists seem more than ever preoccupied with animals. How can we explain this

focus? What ethical issues arise from animal representation? How do artists treat animals in art? Julie Ackerman of Les Inrockuptibles, fixture of French music and cultural discourse since 1986, interviews Giovanni Aloi, specialist in animal representation and Art Historian at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to find out more.

GIOVANNI ALOI

"Personally, I don’t care anymore about what Heidegger thought

of lizards, Agamben of spiders, and Deleuze of wolves, as they all knew very little about these animals. Most often than not, in their work, animals become abstracted and generalized pictures of inferiority."
