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.
It is led by Killing Architects, working together with graphic and interactivity designers LUST and supported by an amazing team of architects and researchers: Abigail Batchelor, Magnus Weightman and Rachel Engler.
The first exhibition as part of the project was Death in Venice. It was shown in June 2014, as an independent event during the opening week of the Venice Architecture Biennale. It was curated by Alison Killing and Ania Molenda, with graphic and interactivity design by LUST. It would not have been possible without Alessandro Borgomaneiro, Abigail Batchelor, Magnus Weightman and Rachel Engler; Sabina Arbouw, Maria Azzura Rossi and Giulia Milza, Kuno Mayr, Harald van der Sluys Veer.
