The Day of the Dead in Mexico is a fascinating tradition that is admired worldwide. This celebration combines pre-Hispanic and Spanish elements and is a key part of Mexican cultural heritage. UNESCO recognized the importance of this cultural manifestation and included it in the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2008. She defined them as traditional, inclusive, representative and communal.

In the Mexican Imaginarium it is believed that on November 1st and 2nd the deceased are allowed to return and be with their families. For this reason, welcome celebrations are held where altars are designed according to regional traditions. Families gather to honor their deceased, whether at home or in cemeteries.

This year, the Latin America Institute, the World Museum Vienna, the Cultural Institute of Mexico in Vienna and Lichtraum eins by Paul Siblik invite you to the festivities and various events that will take place in honor of our deceased. Further information about the events can be found on the respective homepages or under the following links:
