Phillip Warnell will swallow a pill camera in Copenhagen on Sunday

By September 9, 2009 No Comments

Bente and her crew are right now making the last preparations for the next public event here at Medical Museion, viz. Phillip Warnell’s performance ENDO-ECTO on Sunday, 13 September, at 2pm.

In front of the audience in the old anatomical theatre, Phillip will swallow a  pill camera — and gastroenterologist Simon Anderson, London, will be our guide on the camera’s journey through Phillip’s gastrointestinal tract.

The event is an extension of the theme in one of the rooms in our current temporary exhibition ‘Split+Splice: Fragments From the Age of Biomedicine’, which opened in June. This ‘scopic’ part of the exhibition builds mainly on Jan Eric Olsén’s research work on the history of endoscopic technologies, and therefore Jan Eric will be one of the commentators during the event.

Tickets (120 DKK) can be reserved at www.politikenbillet.dk. Read more about the event in Danish here.
