Matthias Gockel

Matthias Gockel has been accompanying and caring for dying people and their relatives as a palliative physician for more than 20 years. From these encounters arose a deep curiosity and reverence for what shapes and determines our lives, our dying, and makes it unique. He lives and works in Berlin.



The thought of death and dying is taboo and self-evident, banal and incomprehensible at the same time. Often repressed in everyday life, it determines our behavior, lurking in the shadows, more often than we think.

It gives us serenity or takes our breath away, makes us small or lets us grow beyond ourselves, makes us despair or search for immortality.

This workshop is an experiment, an attempt to bring this driving force of many of our actions a little out of the shadows, to make it a little more palpable and conscious as a source of joy (though not necessarily of fun).
