Every day approximately 155,000 people die worldwide. Death is unavoidable, an inevitable part of life. Whether it's our own or the death of anyone around us. What role does the inevitable death play in our lives? And do we need new rituals?
The exhibition Death matters showed how different people deal with death worldwide. Visitors could emulate stories and experiences.
“We hardly know what life is, how can we hope to understand death?” Confucius
