In Hope of Making Grieving Tolerable

Tessel Brühl’s project, In Hope of Making Grieving Tolerable, began with a book about intuition; this in turn led to a series of mourning fashions: garments which show outside how we feel inside, and which make the sorrow, pain and fury, as well as hope both bearable and wearable. The project culminated in a film, a moving and impressive plea for grieving openly and sharing one’s grief. Tessel Brühl: “Grieving no longer forms part of our culture. Death is the end, with nothing after it, this while, for the survivors, it has just begun.”
