I wholly enjoyed this. This was my resolution to myself to go to London more to explore new ideas and culture. I really recommend those attending to take a few minutes quiet on your own before entering the exhibition, empty yourself of thought and embrace this wonderful and sometimes shocking collection.

Amazing free exhibition, not being a fan of the Death Theme ( it's better avoided as a subject, isn't it), the display is better than what I could have expected. I think it is one of the must-see exhibitions of the year. You will find a great selection of sketches and drawings including Otto Dix, Goya, Hans Bellmer, Albrecht Durer, an impressive private collection around death covering all periods. Both creepy, gloomy, funny, distracting, disturbing and will make you reflect at the same time. The perfect after-Halloween event or treat yourself to a dark Christmas.
