Necropolitics and its Discontents Art, Mortality and the Political Imagination

Author: Noel Fitzpatrick, Silvia Loeffler Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/02/2019

Necropolitics and its Discontents addresses the relationship between the contemporary political production of death and the way mortality is figured in contemporary visual practices. This unique volume brings artists and theorists together to examine the complex ways in which mortality intersects with questions of political community, belonging and identity, as explored in contemporary art practice and debate. At a time of unprecedented public violence and refugee crises, Necropolitics and its Discontents addresses the contribution of artistic practices to thinking through the culture of precarity and death that characterises the current historical moment. The book offers a unique interdisciplinary intervention into current debates on the political and economic instrumentalisation of death, demonstrating the important role of conetmporary art in providing alternative images and ideas for the contemporary political imagination.Combining formats such as the visual essay with critical theoretical interventions that draw upon contemporary political philosophy, ethnography, economics and art theory, this volume is an important contribution to understanding the processes shaping contemporary political cultures of death.

Listening to the Animals: Becoming The Supervet

Listening to the Animals: Becoming The Supervet

Author: Noel Fitzpatrick Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 18/10/2018

THE NO.1 IRISH BESTSELLER. A powerful, heart-warming and inspiring memoir from the UK's most famous and beloved vet, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick - star of the Channel 4 series The Supervet.Growing up on the family farm in Ballyfin, Ireland, Noel's childhood was spent tending to the cattle and sheep, the hay and silage, the tractors and land, his beloved sheepdog Pirate providing solace from the bullies that plagued him at school. It was this bond with Pirate, and a fateful night spent desperately trying to save a newborn lamb, that inspired Noel to enter the world of veterinary science - and set him on the path to becoming The Supervet. Now, in this long-awaited memoir, Noel recounts this often-surprising journey that sees him leaving behind a farm animal practice in rural Ireland to set up Fitzpatrick Referrals in Surrey, one of the most advanced small animal specialist centres in the world. We meet the animals that paved the way, from calving cows and corralling bullocks to talkative parrots and bionic cats and dogs. Noel has listened to the many lessons that the animals in his care have taught him, and especially the times he has shared with his beloved Keira, the scruffy Border Terrier who has been by Noel's side as he's dealt with the unbelievable highs and crushing lows of his extraordinary career. As heart-warming and life-affirming as the TV show with which he made his name, Listening to the Animals is a story of love, hope and compassion, and about rejoicing in the bond between humans and animals that makes us the very best we can be.
