Pensamos en la muerte porque estamos vivos.

Este libro ilustrado creado por Uxue Alberdi y Araiz Messanza habla de la muerte. “A partir de una edad interiorizamos que vamos a morir, tratamos de entenderlo”, he ahí la reflexión inicial de este proyecto. Uxue primeramente piensa en los niños/as: “El niño/a trata de comprender qué es estar muerto, y algo se le escapa”. Sin embargo, el libro no se centra únicamente en la infancia, ya que las preguntas-respuestas sobre la muerte nunca son definitivas. /

We think about death because we are alive.

This illustrated book created by Uxue Alberdi and Araiz Messanza talks about death. “From a certain age we accept that we are going to die, we try to understand it-” This reflection is the starting point of this project. Uxue first of all thinks about children: “The child tries to understand what it means to be dead, and somehow they cannot grasp it.” However, what the book offers is not limited to childhood, as questions and answers about death are never definitive
