Animal Shelter 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. PIERRE GUYOTAT on childhood, pubescence, poetry.  A short story and collage by RICHARD HAWKINS.  GUY HOCQUENGHEM on the imperialism of the couple.  An unpublished COOKIE MUELLER  short story.  GRACE NDIRITU on responsible tourism.  A short story by DALIA ROSETTI on jailhouse tattoos.  A poem by HEATHCOTE WILLIAMS on Otto Muehl & animal liberation.

Other contributors include: Melissa Barrett, Robert Dewhurst, Tony Duvert, Iris Klein, Fernanda Laguna, Lodovico Pignatti Morano, Jean-Jacques Schuhl, Noura Wedell.
