‘Death in Venice’ is an exhibition about death and modern architecture, which will be shown during the opening week of the 14th Venice Architecture Biennale. The exhibition takes its overarching theme from this years Architecture Venice Biennale, which will focus on ‘The Fundamentals’ of architecture and the theme ‘Absorbing Modernity”. The development of architecture related to death and dying was in the past decade as vivid and significant as the development of other modern ideas that shaped the contemporary city. Nevertheless it is rarely foregrounded in the architectural history of the XX century. We decided to bring this topic to the biennale discussion on fundamentals and modernity – because death is fundamental and its changing place in modern society is worth more significant attention from architects and urban designers.
Death in Venice is the first part of ‘Death in the City’ touring exhibition.
