They say that death is the last great taboo in Western society. However death was the guest of honour in Philly last week. From October 4th-7th, I had the opportunity to attend the 5th instalment of Death Salon, hosted at the “disturbingly informative” Mütter Museum in Philadelphia. Death Salon is an opportunity for artists, academics, authors, morticians, pathologists, and the general public to come together and discuss all things death related. Its format is based on the French salons of the Enlightenment period, where women and men gathered for intellectual discussion.
The event was fantastic and anyone who has considered going should keep their eye out for the next announcement. You can read my full review by visiting Qeepr.com
