July 2008 – December 2008, Working with Russell Berman, Dept of Comparative Literature

During my stay I would like to deepen my studies of how the new biomedical material and visual world can inspire new ways of curatorial and display practices in museums. Biomedical objects differ from the kind of artefacts that we normally associate with medical history collections and museum exhibitions. This has mainly to do with the molecular, digital and hybrid structure of biomedical research and practice. How to overcome this communicative gap is in the focus of my research.
