Sonic Acts 2019: Rosi Braidotti – Necropolitics and Ways of Dying by Sonic Acts published on 2019-05-15T15:18:38Z SONIC ACTS FESTIVAL 2019 – HEREAFTER Rosi Braidotti – Necropolitics and Ways of Dying 22 February 2019 – De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam, The Netherlands with an introduction by Rick Dolphijn. What does it mean to die within the posthuman convergence, which positions us – humans and non-humans – between the Fourth Industrial Age and the Sixth Extinction? This contemporary convergence results in the shifting of boundaries between bio-power and necro-politics, life and death, the government of the living and the practices of dying. I will refer to a neo-materialist philosophy of non-human life as 'Zoe' and argue that both the concept of life and that of death need to be approached with more complexity and more attention to power differences.
