CAFÉ MORTE– Art in the Wake of Death
Café Morte looks at the way in which visual culture represents death and dying, mourning and grieving through art, dreams, desires, imagery and poetry.
CAFÉ MORTE is a pop up research group made up of senior lecturers, undergraduate and postgraduate students from Falmouth University, curators and artists. Its central focus is to discuss the rich and varied themes of death found in art and literature. We have adopted the model of the recently popular Death Cafés, which have arisen worldwide as a meeting place in which to discuss death over a cup of tea. CAFE MORTÉ is art in the wake of death.
