The welfare artist drew up the balance by taking up position in a coffin on the festival grounds. He asked his relations to deliver bouquets and words of condolence. Festival-goers were given the opportunity to view the expressions of mourning. The artist himself experienced the true confrontation. Daan Samson perceived the way in which he will be publicly remembered. He wished to obtain a glimpse of the mood around his own final departure.
