Animal Shelter is an occasional intellectual journal on Art, Sex, Literature published by Semiotext(e) and edited by Hedi El Kholti and Co-Edited by Robert Dewhurst.
Issue 3 visited exotic locales and obscure alcoves of the past; the new issue circles a constellation of sex, exchange, and debt, with a substantial portion devoted to poetry. In issue 4:

Fleeting, ephemeral, nondigital, and nonhierarchical, Animal Shelter is, as Alex Gartenfeld wrote in Interview, “a loose collection of texts, sequenced like a mixtape,” focused yet eclectic. Issue 4 is coedited by Hedi El Kholti and Robert Dewhurst.
