Sue Coe

's illustrated narrative, Dead Meat, is a visual chronicle of the slaughterhouse industry in the United States, Canada, and England and is a journal about the materiality of animal death. Written in a quasi-journalistic format with accompanying drawings and sketches, Coe uncovers the realities of abattoirs, slaughterhouses, and industrial farms where much of our meat, eggs, and dairy products are rendered into consumable form. She recognizes the fractures and destruction in the death of livestock animals and points to how these fractures create space for new ways of thinking about and animals and our relationship to them. By reading against more traditional forms of representation, Coe creates new ways of categorizing livestock animals, rendering them as individuals apart from any taxonomic categorization.
