Split + Splice as a mirror structure between laboratory and museum

By February 12, 2010 No Comments

Last year we announced the upcoming conference ‘Wissenschaft im Museum – Ausstellung im Labor’ which Anke te Heesen and Margarete Vöhrunger are organising in Tübingen 8-9 April.

Now the final programme has been announced — it includes, among other things, a presentation growing out of our ‘Biomedicine on Display’ project and the exhibition ‘Split + Splice: Fragments from the Age of Biomedicine‘ (Danish: del+hel). The exhibition’s lead curator, Martha Fleming (now at the Natural History Museum in London) and one of the co-curators, Susanne Bauer (now at the Max-Planck-Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte in Berlin) will give a paper titled ‘Displaying Observational Practice: Split + Splice as a mirror structure between laboratory and museum’. See the full programme here.
