Recently I gave a talk at the Coffin Works, as part of the GAME OVER exhibition. The theme was Death in Art; Medieval to the Modern. I was also asked to produce a booklet to accompany the talk/exhibition. I’m not an art historian, but my work on funerary monuments has lead me to be fascinated with this topic- I really enjoyed the chance to research it in greater depth. I also relished the challenge of explaining this info in a clear and concise way for lay audiences.
I’m hoping to upload my talk to Academia.edu at some point but in the meantime I’m making the pdf of my booklet available on my site for free (you can thank the GAME OVER funders).
