This essay aims to discuss how suicide can be conceived through its transgression of the characteristics of the field of privacy and of the western standard of death. To demonstrate this hypothesis, some suicidal events will be discussed: fragments of private suicides scenes, a public suicide and a suicide occurred within the limits of the public-private space. Our analysis points to suicide as transgression in its essence and discuss the reactions of individuals and institutions emerged from this procedural act of violation of taboos.
