The Introduction discusses the widespread mistrust of contemporary art that deals with animals, and argues for the necessary connection of creativity and trust. Testing this to the limit by examining two artworks that brought about animals’ deaths, it explains why choosing neither to condone nor to condemn such works may be the only means by which anything will be learned from them.
