Dying Together asks if moments of collective death can tell us something about how we relate to each other in life.
Does the way in which we experience these moments through the media reveal differences in the way we value the lives and deaths of others in the world?
The public is invited to participate in a deeply moving physical thought exercise in which recent situations where many people have died together are reflected on.
This gradually changing constellation of people creates new relationships and new meanings, to each other and to those people whose lives were swept up in tragedy. Amsterdam-based artist Lotte Van Den Berg aims to make the conflicts and contradictions that are present in society apparent, examine them collectively and raise awareness about them.
