How might we live our dying on a dying planet in a way that contests its terms? Drawing on work from her almost-completed book project Necrolandscaping, Casid offers an aesthetic tactics of landscape in the deformative, in which the volatile, strangely resilient powers of the negative are mined as vital resources for a Necrocene ethics. 

 

What Casid calls “care for death” elaborates the practice of transversal vulnerability, extending the book’s thinking with experimental art practice in the art of dying beyond the limits of what is considered grievable death in order to imagine and enact other scenes of care within the Necrocene.
