Welcome to The World is in You – an engagement and exhibition project curated by Medical Museion. The World is in You covers a range of public activities, culminating in a major exhibition at Kunsthal Charlottenborg opening September 29th 2021.

The World is in You examines how the world around us affects our bodies – how our bodies are shaped by the larger, ultimately planetary, systems that weave into and through it. We feel that the notion of the interconnected body and world, has taken on new significance in the beginning of the 21st century. We see and experience how we are changing the planet around us, and there is an increased interest in how those changes are affecting our bodies in return. We are experiencing a connectedness both ‘downwards’ to the microcosmic world of bacteria, fungi, viruses and other microorganisms living on and in our bodies, as well as ‘upwards’ to the macrocosmic planetary structures that support our very existence.

The Worls is in You is built on a collaboration between Medical Museion, the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research (CBMR), both University of Copenhagen, and Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

 The exhibition is funded by a grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation’s thematic program for innovative science communication and debate on science and technology.
