(Re-)design Death

After the succesful exhibition Nature, the exhibition (Re)design Death has recently started. The exhibition in Cube Designmuseum shows 50 Dutch and international design projects around saying goodbye, dying, mourning and remembering. The objects show how designers, often after a personal experience, give substance to the needs and rituals that exist around death.

The exhibition runs until 24 januari 2021 in Cube Designmuseum

About the exhibition:

A euthanasia roller coaster, a virtual near-death experience or an app to continue to communicate with your loved one after his death. A few examples of the designs that can be seen in the new exhibition "(Re) design Death". Spread over two exhibition rooms, there are around fifty current designs around preparation for death, farewell, mourning and eternal life.

The exhibition shows how designers, often after a personal experience, give substance to the needs and rituals that exist around death. Being able to talk about death can make a big difference in reducing fear of death and accepting death as part of life. In addition, ten designers are currently working in a Design Challenge on a concept around the question "do you want to live forever?" The three best designs eventually get a place in the exhibition.
