De muerte / Anna Melgar

Anna Melgar / ESDAP Catalunya / Campus Llotja

De muerte is intended to normalize all aspects of death to make it a casual and pleasant conversation topic. Information and digital dialogue, spreading knowledge that should be part of general culture —and meanwhile issuing a satirical and humorous condemnation— about a series of curious and problematic issues connected to death. It is a project that raises social awareness about death and makes it part of our lives. It helps us to realise that even though death is natural, modern culture’s anxiety about death is not.

De muerte offers a way of reappraising the attitudes and customs (graphic, social and cultural) regarding death. It encourages today’s society to stop feeling uneasy and uncomfortable when the subject is brought up in our daily lives. It meanwhile reminds us of how desensitized we are to it from afar (video games, films, etc.) and how little we know about it and its consequences (on nature and society). De muerte establishes a dialogue that breaks the taboo of talking about death and everything related to it.
