The BODY WORLDS at Menschen Museum gives insights into the highly complex structures of the human body and shows what connects us, keeps us upright and in motion, and what makes us laugh and love.
Moreover, the Menschen Museum opens the visitors' eyes to various facets that determine our existence:
HAPPINESS & UNHAPPINESS
The pursuit of happiness and love dominate our lives. But what determines whether we are happy or not?
EXCESS & MODERATION
Modern life is comfortable. Yet at the same time, we long for a perfect body, vitality and health. How can we find the right balance?
PRESSURE & RELEASE
Too much pressure is bad for body and mind. How can we resist and refuel our body?
GLUTTONY & RESTRAINT
What our body needs for a long, healthy life often contrasts with how we feed it. What can our body bear?
CHANCE & DESTINY
Life is a mystery. Humanity has always been fascinated by the question of where we come from. What determines whether we are alive and healthy?

Address & Directions
Plan your visit
Directly at the TV-Tower
You will find the exhibition in the basement of the TV-tower. Leaving the train station heading towards the TV-tower, you will have to walk around the building to find the entrance on the opposite side of it.
Coming from the “Museumsinsel” (Museum Island) you will find the entrance right behind the “Neptunbrunnen” (Neptun’s fountain).
We recommend using the public transportation, since parking space is rare and expensive. The Station Berlin Alexanderplatz is close to the exhibition and hosts many Metro- Bus- and street train lines. Please find the best connection at BVG.
Susan Gurnee has expertly captured life force essence and its vibrational components. These paintings have been categorized as “Resonance Art”. She carries on a tradition used by medicine men and shamans to evoke change.
Using highly developed artistic skills, Susan Gurnee’s painting reveal multi-layered glazed images. With between twelve to twenty layers she produces luminous representations of the physical systems of the body. When Resonance Artist Susan Gurnee paints, she expands beyond the boundaries of realism to capture vibrational energetics of the system dynamics of the human form. Trained as a scientific illustrator, the luminosity of her “Body Vital” series is radiant and vibrates with a frequency felt by many. Laboratory testing reveals that her paintings register at a higher amplitude in hertz than the tested control canvases.
New York Times’ art critic, Ken Johnson featured her painting series during Art Week in NYC and likened her work to Kandinsky. Susan Gurnee’s Resonance Art can be seen in numerous museums and in private and public collections in the United States and Europe.
