Book a tour: Life and death in art – Göteborgs konstmuseum

At the Gothenburg Museum of Art, many artworks feature powerful symbols, painful themes and dramatic fates. Art depicts all the phases of life – and death. Why is death so exciting? And what really is most important in life? How is death portrayed in art, and can a skull actually be a symbol for life? We take a closer look at how artists have depicted life and death in both historical and contemporary art.
