THE WORLD IS IN YOU
30 September 2021 – 16 January 2022
The World is in You culminates in a major exhibition at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, which will open September 18th 2021.
The exhibition brings together art works, objects and stories from science, as well as artfacts from the cultural history embedded in its themes, to capture the interlinkages of science and society.
This is an approach, which we have developed at Medical Museion over the past decade, resulted in the research and exhibition project Mind the Gut, which won the Bikuben Foundation Vision Award 2015 and the UMAC award 2019. The World is in You builds on this approach, taking it to one of the largest sites of contemporary art in Denmark.
The exhibition is designed as a lively space. Among the installations is an auditorium, which is built with the exhibition itself, where we can stage lectures, debates and performances. The idea is that audiences on any given day might encounter a scientist discussing circadian biology, a historian telling about sleep issues and medicine the 19th century, or an artist presenting works from the intersections of art and science.
