Death in the City [EOL in Art 25]

Death in the City is a touring exhibition about death and modern architecture – the hospitals, hospices, cemeteries, crematoria and mortuaries that we pass through on either side of death, how they came to be the way they are and how they could be made better.

This interactive map of London, which shows how many buildings and public spaces in the city are given over to death, is the centerpiece of Death in Venice. The solid white shapes are hospitals, hospices, mortuaries, crematoria and cemeteries. As visitors wave their hands over the map, the names of the sites appear.
