Actually, the Dead Are Not Dead examines how to redefine our alliances with those who are not presently living. The project proposes communicating with the spectres of the past and the future and taking responsibility for those who are no longer, or not yet, here. This responsibility defies the subjugation of life to the politics of death, ranging from the destruction of the material and idealistic basis of life for countless people, or the deadly rejection of refugees, to the destruction of the planet. Actually, the Dead Are Not Dead revolves around the reclamation of life, fathoming the potential of artistic practices to imagine life differently.
