Opened in 1992, a few quiet footsteps from Grimmwelt Kassel, the Museum für Sepulkralkultur is entirely dedicated to the culture of death, from burial customs and memorial symbols to more everyday experiences of mortality. Throughout the museum and loosely integrated with the collection, the documenta 14 exhibition presents an ensemble of artworks and archival documents that stages the body as both an instrument and an index, as a cause or an effect, as a way to invoke history or set it in motion, as a means of oppression or a sign of the oppressed.
