Made in a workshop led by S†ëfan Schäfer (Let Death Dance Again). Delving into abstract territory, the workshop investigated how a contemporary, non-human thing can experience death. The workshop unfolded as an immersive journey into the realm of non-human entities and their delicate existence. Participants were encouraged to engage in thought-provoking discussions, investigating the power of death and commemorative culture in the context of environmental devastation caused by anthropogenic climate change in a poetic way. Drawing from diverse disciplines such as philosophy, anthropology, and design, the workshop sought to unravel the complex relationship between mortality and non-human entities.
