Abstract [en]

paper asks about the ways to rethink death in its multiplicitous ecosophical relationality, processuality and materiality, beyond the structures of human exceptionalism that govern Western ontological, ethico-political and cultural renderings of both life and death. One of the avenues to do so is to engage with practices of eco-, bio- and body art, which themselves challenge the hegemonic position of the human subject and seek to unpack the life/death binary in the context of contemporary technoscience and environmental crises. Yet, in order to explore death as post-anthropocentric ecologies we need tools that may queer its conventional understandings. To paraphrase Noreen Giffney and Myra Hird, to ‘queer’ means to unhinge certainties and systematically disturb the familiar, ‘to undo normative entanglements and fashion alternative imaginaries’ beyond the exclusive concern with gender and sexuality (2008, 6). The task of queer theorising is a task of continuous self-reflection, of critique and the rendering visible of the ‘norm’.
