A 1/7, 3D-printed model of Sarco was first unveiled by Philip Nitschke and co-creator, Dutch design engineer Alex Bannink, at the 2017 NuTech conference in Toronto (New Technologies for a Peaceful DIY Death). See: https://vimeo.com/251493623
A full-scale, laser-cut wood model and VR (virtual reality) program (which modelled the view from within Sarco) was exhibited in April 2018 at the Amsterdam Funeral Fair.
Sarco had its global launch at Venice Design at the Palazzo Michiel in 2019. A recording of the Exit livestream from Ven- ice featuring the Sarco can be viewed on the final page of the eHandbook.
In February 2020, Sarco moved to the Cube Design Museum in Kerkrade in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, the exhibition had only intermittent openings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
From September 2021, Sarco will be exhibited at the Sepul- chral Culture Museum in Kassel, Germany.
