Is it acceptable to exhibit human remains (like a skull, a preserved organs, or other body parts of the dead) publicly? Does it matter if their identity, or the circumstances that brought them to a collection, are known? Will different visitors to an exhibition with human remains have different perspectives on these questions? Should the exhibition curators decide then which of these perspectives prevail?Artist and researcher Tal Adler, creator of the installation “Who is ID 8470?”, will focus on these questions on a guided tour through the exhibition “After Nature” at the Humboldt Lab. In dialogue with another guide and the visitors the question will be discussed what might be considered as ethically “sensitive objects” and “sensitive collections”. The talk will be held in English and German.
