Let’s talk about it!
Suicide and suicidal tendencies are sufferings that are concealed in our society. Roughly 10,000 people die at their own hand in Germany each year; most of them in severe psychological, social, and physical distress. The silence that accompanies their passing has a deadly effect. That is why speaking publically about suicide, its cause and effect, is of importance to society. The Museum für Sepulkralkultur (Museum for Sepulchral Culture) in Kassel has dedicated this publication to the search for a language that enables us to speak with openness and understanding about suicide and suicidal tendencies on an individual, social, and professional level.
This book brings together essays, interviews, and artistic examinations to generate a many-voiced discourse. It is a platform for the results of current research and also opens up an associative space for thought with the help of predominantly contemporary artistic positions.
