BODY WORLDS Pulse in Dresden is now closed
BODY WORLDS PULSE asks visitors to consider the frenetic pace of modern living and its effect on the body and mind. It highlights the mind-body connection and offers guided information on the latest preventive healthcare while addressing common disorders and stress related maladies and diseases,
The exhibition is uniquely curated by Dr. Angelina Whalley to show the science and splendour of the human body and deconstructs its form and function through the trailblazing science of plastination, invented by anatomist, Dr. Gunther von Hagens. Visitors will witness the body in health and distress, learn its vulnerabilities and potential, and consider many of the challenges it faces as it navigates the 21st Century.
A special collection of plastinated specimens – including spectacular whole body plastinates, body configurations, translucent slices, and organs, as well as interactive elements, 3D and multimedia displays guide viewers through the various systems of the body. The locomotive, nervous, respiratory, circulatory, cardiovascular, digestive, and reproductive systems are explored in detail.
This exhibit invites you to discover how embracing healthy lifestyles and living to an optimal tempo, neither too fast nor too slow, but to the beat of your own life, can lead to pulsating vitality.
