Chapter Summary

Confrontations and debates over animal experimentation have been a familiar feature of radical social action in industrialized societies. One reason for animal advocates’ reliance upon visual communication is that “animals cannot speak up for themselves, so the message is in greater need of visual reinforcement than, presumably, for issues of human rights”. Amongst those involved in the use of animals, whether in science, medicine or farming and its support industries, the development of an urban-centered commodity capitalism has demanded that images of animal suffering be removed from public visibility. The proceedings of Australian and New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching (ANZCCART) over recent years demonstrate a pervasive awareness that representation of the experimental animal in visual culture is crucial to the future of animal science.
