People from around the world convene in a few locations for a Death Salon. Almost everyone is in black and has a morbid fascination with the macabre and death. The Death Salon brings historians, writers, artists, death professionals and so much more to share and engage with the audience on one subject: Our mortality.
They embody the eighteenth-century-salon idea of an informal gathering of intellectuals. They encourage conversations and dialogues about mortality, death, mourning and their effects on our lives and history.
One of the most interesting sessions is with a mortician where people ask her all sorts of fascinating questions. Everyone is encouraged to participate and she loves the most bizarre and weird questions.
