About us

The National Association of Life&Death is a humanitarian, non-profit organization. Our purpose is to start the good conversation about death and the dignified farewell.

We work to …

  • Ensure that people get a worthy parting with life
  • Help people fulfill their wishes towards the end of life
  • Break down the taboos around death
  • Inform about issues associated with death

The Funebarium

The association is situated in the heart of Copenhagen, where our exhibition space The Funebarium is also placed. The Funebarium is an exhibition space devoted to the subject of death.

Our permanent exhibition provides a good basis for reflection and conversation about death, loss, grief and burial. In our permanent exhibition we focus on:

  • What choices we have towards the end of life
  • A worthy parting with life
  • The burial and the funeral
  • Rituals of grief and remembrance

As part of our permanent exhibition, you can for example see a version of the Tree of Life and write your wishes in life on a leaf and put it on the tree. You can also see a casket and an urn.

Our temporary exhibitions focus on aspects of life and death with different contemporary themes and personal, cultural-historical and artistic perspectives.
