Curator: Dimitrina Sevova

The work is about the death of Marilyn Monroe on 5 August, 50 years ago. Monroe was found dead at her home in Brenwood, Los Angeles, California. She was 36 years old. In the subsequent autopsy, eight-milligram percent of chloral hydrate and 4.5-milligram percent of Nembutal were found in her body, so that the cause of her death was recorded as “acute barbiturate poisoning” resulting from a “probable suicide.”
