Death: is it your right to choose? [EOL in Art 196]

This weekend, the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery opens an exhibit which is a re-creation of a room at the Dignitas flat near Zurich.

The reproduction of the room is surrounded by displays relating to the wider spectrum of opinions on Assisted Dying including many personal testimonies.  The space allows visitors to explore their own feelings about the debate through a sensory as well as an intellectual experience guided by medical, ethical, philosophical and emotive elements.

The exhibition is intended to encourage debate and discussion around end of life choices whilst the current law on assisted dying in the UK is undergoing scrutiny.
