Wednesday 6 May | Virtual reality exhibition Design for the end of life

The corona pandemic confronts us with all sorts of issues we usually don’t really (want to) think about. Death is one of them. Yet, the amount of people that have died from corona and questions on what to do with the deceased was all over the news the last couple of weeks.

Thinking of death, ranging from practical decisions to the more philosophical questions, became inevitable these days. February 2020 the TU Delft Library, Studium Generale, design museum Cube, film theatre Lumen, Theater de Veste and many more partners, organised a multidisciplinary programme around these matters. A programme that is very relevant, now more than ever.

The exhibition ‘(Re)design Death’ in Cube shows how #designers interpret the needs that people confronted with death may have, now and in the future. With contributions from TU Delft students and researchers. Since visiting the museum is off limits now, you can visit this worthwhile 360 degree exhibition via virtual reality here.

Studium Generale created a Corona Care Package to make #StayingIn as pleasant as possible. In the following weeks we will share videos, blogs, articles and podcasts within four focus areas: Mental Health, The World After Corona, Arts & Culture and other online events.
