How We Die Is How We Live Only More So brings together written responses to Oreet Ashery’s award winning film Revisiting Genesis, 2016. This work, originally conceived as a web-series, combines the fictional story of the dying artist Genesis, alongside conversations with artists who have real life limiting conditions. The publication includes writing by Rizvana Bradley, T.J. Demos, Mason Leaver- Yap, Imani Robinson and Bárbara Rodríguez Muñoz, alongside interviews between George Vasey and Ashery. Also in the book are research notes and scripts for Revisiting Genesis and Dying Under Your Eyes, 2019. Ashery’s work explores queer and outsider death & dying, care, politics of the digital afterlife & posthumous service technologies as well as feminist reincarnation, socio-political loss and artistic withdrawal.
