When you think of death, what comes to mind? Fear? Anxiety? Loss? Have you ever thought of death as something...beautiful? In this photography-filled talk, artist and museum curator Joanna Ebenstein explores the ways death is celebrated around the world—from a cause for festivities and wonder, to a mysterious, marvelous moment that should be honored and preserved. Joanna Ebenstein is a multidisciplinary artist, death enthusiast, and cofounder of Brooklyn’s Morbid Anatomy Museum.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
