Anatomy Lessons

What makes a person a patient today? Four Berlin-based doctors explore this and other vital question of modern medicine during an unusual one day experiment titled Anatomy Lessons on June 23rd, 2012 at 2 p.m. at Charité hospital. Plastic surgeon Manfred Frey, internist Michael Häfner, abdominal surgeon Peter Moeschl and paediatric neurosurgeon Ulrich Thomale temporarily assume the role of artists and communicate common notions about the human body via a visual language.

The results of the symposium were published in a publication edited by Christina Lammer. More info

Ilana Halperin: New Landmass

The publication “Ilana Halperin, New Landmass, Neue Landmasse” accompanies Ilana Halperin’s first two solo exhibitions in Germany: Steine (Stones) at the Museum of Medical History at the Charité and Hand Held Lava at the Project Space of the Schering Stiftung. Edited by curators Sara Barnes and Andrew Patrizio, the catalogue includes texts by Gillian Beer, Horst Bredekamp, Ilana Halperin, Thomas Schnalke, volcanologist Hugh Tuffen, and the curators themselves, most of which have been written especially for the catalogue. Halperin’s artistic work and her intellectual passions form the gravitational center which the essays examine from the perspectives of aesthetics, the history of science, and cultural philosophy.
