The Good Death


premiere: 4th of July

Death, burial and mourning are still taboo for most of us. The Good Death exhibition, inspired by the death positive movement, directs its attention to the last stage of life, inviting participants to discuss the inevitable.

We are witnesses to redefining experiences of death, burial, mourning and remembrance. Societies are ageing. Overpopulation and lack of burial space in some countries collide with the diminishing population of others. Secularization and the creation of a new spirituality require the consideration of old or obsolete rituals. The growing awareness of ecology, mobility and digitalization are constantly changing the perception of burial and the function of cemeteries.

More information soon in our guide. Premiere on 4th of July!
