So back to this time - the exhibitions were so wonderful, but not appropriate for visual documentation. The first temporary exhibition was on Forensics, and really delved into how they figure out some of the more gruesome details about death (it was disgustingly fantastic!). The second temporary exhibition was called "The Institute of Sexology" and presented both information and examples of the study and debates surrounding sex over the past 150 years. Needless to say quite interesting topics to be discussed and thought about, and the collection very much so inspired reflection on change in society and how technology has assisted in this change of both information gathering and with it a greater understanding of our humanity in life and death.
I did take some pictures of the permanent collection - all about Visualizing information - something this museum does exceptionally well as it has art to making it meet the discerning aesthetic eye of the viewer while accurately communicating the data, a feat not to be diminished. So - now - here's the pictures!!!
We need to ask Denise if we can get this book - if we don't already have it
