Museum Tot Zover

-The last Pet-

 13-6-2019                         †23-02-2020

“Museum Tot Zover (“So Long” or “So Far”), a museum on life & death, presents contemporary work by artists responding to a growing trend in the Netherlands: mourning animals. De Laatste Aai, which can be translated as either ‘The Last Pet’ or ‘The Final Caress’ pays homage to animals and considers not only the grieving process and compassion for our pets, the rituals and practices surrounding animal death, but also our indifference to other animals.”
