Inspired by Nina Cvar’s book Digital Image and Global Capitalism, the article polemically undertakes an analysis of today’s form of capitalist production, encapsulated by the concept of necrocapitalism. Necrocapitalism emerged from the intertwining of colonial forms of sovereignty and deregulated capital accumulation, leading to the expropriation and subjugation of life to the power of death. The article is primarily focused on the effects of various forms of power – both material and discursive – and their role in the economy of violence and expropriation. In the book, the process of racialization, which regulates what is and is not human, is a major factor in the creation of dead worlds. Finally, I turn to the role of the digital image and new technologies in neoliberal necrocapitalism as presented by Nina Cvar in her book.
