Translated into English by Ariane Kossack. Published by Galerie KK Klaus Kiefer from Essen, with whom I have worked well for many years. As with my previous books, I did the design and typesetting myself. It was printed and bound by oeding print in Braunschweig. The printing and overall production process is vegan certified.

In Hartmut KiewertÔÇÖs Multispecies Futures*, the human-animal relationship is no longer characterised by objectification and exploitation, but by empathy, connection and solidarity. The Leipzig-based painter shows possible future scenarios in which pigs, cows and chickens, freed from fattening facilities and slaughterhouses, conquer parks, shopping malls and streets. The animal industry is ruined and humans and non-human animals meet on equal footing. The latter are recognized as subjects of their own lives and are co-creators of a possible socially and climate-just world.
