Morbid Anatomy Vienna Anatomy Weekend at the Josephinum and Narrenturm and SAVE THE DATE
October 13 and 14, 2018
Vienna, Austria (Josephinum
and Narrenturm (hospital)
Please join us this October as we partner with two of the world's most magnificent medical museums--The Josephinum, housing a historical collection of 18th century anatomical wax models crafted by Italy's La Specola workshop, and the pathological-anatomical collection housed in an 18th century former madhouse, the Narrenturm.
This special weekend will include exclusive front and back stage tours of these incredible historic collections, along with the opportunity to draw pieces from the collection. It will also include illustrated lectures by Eduard Winter of the Narrenturm, Martina Peters of the Josephinum, Laurens de Rooy
of Amsterdam's Vrolik Museum, wax artist Eleanor Crook
, and Morbid Anatomy's Joanna Ebenstein, all touching on the intersections of art and medicine, death and culture.
All programs will be in English.
