(p.31) 2 Animal Tracks: Affect, Aesthetics, Ethics

Norie Neumark

The MIT Press

In this chapter the author listens through new materialism to animals’ voices in various art assemblages. Theoretically, ethically, and politically, new materialism opens up a recognition of the specificity, singularity and entanglements of animals voices with others. The author brings a range of works into conversation with theories of affect, attunement, assemblage; becoming-animal and ventriloquism. The chapter traverses an enchanted terrain in which animal voices speak themselves and speak a variety of relationships with people, animals and things, in and out of assemblages. These voices in media and art works speak to and with animal studies and new materialism, bringing forth understandings that are enchanting, engaging, disturbing, and curious.

Keywords:   animals, new materialism, assemblage, ethics, becoming-animal, ventriloquism, entanglement, attunement, affect, aesthetics
