This is our project…
The Culture Festival MEMENTO MORI is addressing the subject of death with a varied programme of lectures, workshops, concerts, readings, movies, theatre productions, walks and guided tours of museums.
Many items in the programme invite visitors to get involved: In Café Tristesse, the bereaved can share their experiences over coffee and cake, the Young Widow_ers Club organises a living books evening and participants in the workshop “Adieu-Tücher” design handkerchiefs in memory of the departed under the guidance of the artist Ida Divinzenz.
Numerous intercultural lectures from figures including Thomas Macho, Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat and Danielle Spera also invite the audience to have their say: The subjects of the lectures range from “To whom does my life belong? Suicide in the modern age”, “Grieving rituals in Judaism” and “Taboos surrounding death in Japan” to “Solidarity between the living, the dying and the dead”.
