Borrowed Time: on death, dying & change

Borrowed Time:

on death, dying & change

 

 throughout 2021, culminating in November

What constitutes ‘a good death’? How do we know death, personally? What room do we make for the dead –– within our relationships, our ways of speaking, our shared geographies? And how might the insights of end-of-life care and death practices help us to navigate the fundamental unsustainability of the dominant culture, and to better imagine what comes after it?

From now until the end of November 2021 art.earth is opening a space to explore these and other questions pertaining to death, dying and change, and to ask what dying has to teach us about living well, and living sustainably. This space will include and culminate in a series of happenings and events throughout November 2021 with a special closing event in collaboration with our friends at ONCA as they mark the 10th anniversary of their renowned Remembrance Day for Lost Species. 

We proposed our theme before the world was gripped by a global pandemic. Whilst still overshadowed by civilisation’s ongoing extermination of the natural world, Borrowed Time’s parallel, human thread – our relationship with and understanding of personal dying – has most certainly been sharpened by the more than a million lives lost so far to Covid 19.
