The Jester & Death is an animation which sees the Jester (Béna’s avatar) and William Blake attend a drift-car race. The scene takes place in the Bunhill Fields cemetery; a 16th-18th Century former burial ground located near Kunstraum where nonconformists, radicals and dissenters are buried, holding the remains of John Bunyan, author of The Pilgrim’s Progress, Daniel Defoe, who wrote Robinson Crusoe, and the poet and artist William Blake, among thousands of others.
