One the go, past and future.

Post thoughts, feelings and images related to relevant exhibitions and museums

A friend of mine went visiting this and sounded impressive.



Exquisite Bodies - London

"In the 19th century, despite the best efforts of body snatchers, the demand from medical schools for fresh cadavers far outstripped the supply. One solution to this gruesome problem came in the form of lifelike wax models. These models often took the form of alluring female figures that could be stripped and split into different sections. Other models were more macabre, showing the body ravaged by 'social diseases' such as venereal disease, tuberculosis and alcohol and drug addiction.

With their capacity to titillate as well as educate, anatomical models became sought-after curiosities, displayed not only in dissecting rooms but also in sideshows and the curiosity cabinets of wealthy Victorian gentlemen. For a small admission fee, visitors seeking an unusual afternoon's entertainment could visit displays of these strange dolls in London, Paris, Brussels and Barcelona.

This exhibition explores the forgotten history of the anatomical model, which with its unique combination of serious science and fairground horror provides a rare insight into 19th-century beliefs about the body.

This exhibition is free. See opening hours

Please note that the exhibition contains explicit material that some visitors may find disturbing. As such it is not recommended for under-18s.

However, if you are planning to visit with younger visitors and would like to make an informed decision about the exhibition's suitability, please see our staff at the Information Point, where images of the exhibits are available to view. More information for parents"

Criminology Museum - Rome

http://www.museocriminologico.it

I have been there several times. Many resources from the notorious Lombroso archive.
Any sort of torture device and weapon and tons of documents, pictures, arctifats regarding crime in Italy in the past centuries.

There is a whole room dedicated to Mastro Titta, Rome's most acclaimed hangman with a set of guillottines.

That is a great work.
Von hagen did amazing stuff and the idea is more morbid than the exhibition itself that is more fascinating and interesting than "extreme".

Try to get the dvds they have produced with the whole plastination process.

they showed somekind of document about it on tv little while back. I wonder if its the same. id love to volunteer at the place but I cant afford to travel that extencively. the only bodies ive seen so far have been fairly fresh hahah. oh and one transformation from living hellraiser/badboy to corpse with bulletholes in it. I doubt any museum will ever top that experience.

LOL.

I can check the titles home and tell you about the documentary. I have also downloaded an anatomy class Von Haugen did on BBC that caused some stir since it featured an actual autopsy in studio.

Visited this in Dublin. Very lovely. My favourite being a fat female sliced like a loaf of bread to c. 3 cm pieces and then assembled back to body form. Also you can get close view of all internal organs and every layer of body. Lots of aborted fetuses in various stages of development.

By the way, some months ago Museum of Criminal Anthropologic of Cesare Lombroso re-opened after years of oblivion.

For the life of me I can't remember the name, but while in Arles France this past summer I walked into an exhibit showing the mistreatment of blacks during the early 20th century in the southern US. It was at the Cloister of St. Trophimus. I don't read French so I had no idea what it was about. The curators stopped me at the entrance and told me it would be immoral (his words) to bring my two daughters in, so of course I had to go.

Lots of photographs of hangings, torture and burnings. Some had been made into postcards while some were photos accompanied by letters. I remember one of a hanging, charred corpse and the letter said something like "Virgil, we had us a nice bar-b-que this past Friday. You can see your son Henry on the bottom left was in attendance".

Musée Dupuytren
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Musée Dupuytren is a museum of anatomical items illustrating diseases and malformations. It is located at 15, rue de l'Ecole de Médecine, Les Cordeliers, Paris, France, and open weekdays except holidays and university vacations.

The museum was established in 1835 by Mathieu Orfila as the Museum of Pathological Anatomy of the Medicine Faculty of the University of Paris, with the bequest of Baron Guillaume Dupuytren, anatomist and celebrated professor of surgery. The museum was installed in the old refectory of the Cordeliers Convent, gathering collections from throughout the faculty. Its first catalog was compiled between 1836 and 1842, and listed about a thousand specimens. By the late 1870s the museum contained over six thousand pieces.

The museum began a slow decline, however, from later 1800s despite continued acquisition of new collections, and its upkeep became problematic. In 1937 Gustave Roussy ordered the museum shut, with many items subsequently lost or destroyed. However in 1967 Jacques Delarue (1901-1971) brought the museum back to life with a general refurbishment. Today it still retains a superb collection, including specimens dating from the 17th century, as well as wax anatomical models, books, and photographs.

Among many other notable items, the museum contains brains of aphasic patients, preserved in alcohol by the celebrated anatomist Paul Pierre Broca, and used in his research in the localization of brain functions.

well I went to see bodies exposed yesterday. it wasnt as wast as id hoped it be. there werent any really big ones? they looked cool but I wish there would have been more. I guess it was somekind of an "on the road" version.

favourites were all the full bodies and the full set of bowls. from anus to voice box I believe it was. a great idea for a sex toy!!

edit: the artsiest body was one that looked like a half finished puzzle. some parts were left open and it was much longer than normal because the bits werent in their place. a cool conversational piece for the livingroom, no doubt about it.

Did anyone see the Jack the Ripper and the East End exhibition? Any good?

Quote
Julia Hoffbrand, curator of the exhibition says, “Jack the Ripper and the East End will take visitors deep into the labyrinth of late-Victorian Whitechapel. It will reveal the lives of those who inhabited the streets and courts where the murders took place – lives which are obscured in so many accounts of the Ripper murders.

With the original surviving case reports and photographs, and artefacts from late 1880s Whitechapel on public display for the first time, visitors to Museum in Docklands will have the chance to examine the contemporary evidence first hand, enter the world in which the crimes took place and reach their own conclusions about a London story which continues to fascinate and shock.”
