...of forms of death not only precede but also yield the relational conditions for the production of life. This is best captured in Giorgio Agamben’s ( 1998 ) portrait of homo sacer , the “impure” figure who, relegated to bare life , must not be sacrificed. In managing or governing homo sacer , while the figure is not to be put to death, anyone who does so can kill with impunity.
