BODY WORLDS in Innsbruck is now closed.
From June 9 until October 15, 2023 plastinator Dr. Gunther von Hagens and curator Dr. Angelina Whalley will present their latest exhibition BODY WORLDS – The Rhythm Of Life at the BALE in Innsbruck.
BODY WORLDS – The Rhythm Of Life is uniquely curated by Dr. Angelina Whalley to show the fragility, resilience and strength of the human body. The extraordinary real specimens demonstrate the complexity, resilience and vulnerability of the human body. The exhibition presents the body in health and distress, its vulnerabilities and potential, and many of the challenges the human body faces as it navigates the 21st Century. Visitors will marvel at the life processes that are captured in the exhibition and will leave with a new appreciation of the power we have to keep our bodies healthy.
Specimens on display stem from the Institute for Plastination’s body donation program and are preserved through plastination, a remarkable scientific process invented by pioneering anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens.
