“The Multispecies Salon is not a conventional academic monograph, but rather itself a kind of novel assemblage.  It is in many ways an art book, and its great strength is the extraordinary range of remarkable art projects it makes available to the reader, all of which are not only fascinating in their own right as art events or journeys, but have been beautifully written up in accessible language that makes them work as stories as well as case studies.”

“This timely anthology offers a substantial and engaging introduction to the field of multispecies studies. This intervention draws its inspiration from the work of Donna Haraway, and in particular her two volumes on companion species. Like Haraway (and Cary Wolfe), the multispecies theorists draw heavily on the work of continental philosophers such as Isabelle Stengers, Vinciane Despret, Jacques Derrida, Michel de Certeau, as well as Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari.”

“The editors and contributors should be congratulated for assembling a highly creative and original anthology which makes an important and timely intervention, while also continuing to expand the multispecies project, in ways that will undoubtedly be not only appreciated by many readers, but are likely to inspire many types of artistic production. Much of the writing is of such a high quality it is a pleasure to read in itself, and in many places I gasped or laughed out loud at some of the extraordinary descriptions I encountered.”
