Medical Museion, The World is in You
Documentation, Reflections, Lessons
In January 2020, just months before the COVID pandemic hit the world, Medical Museion received substantial funding from the Novo Nordic Foundation to realise a large-scale project about how human bodies are affected by the environments that they inhabit. Entitled The World is in You, the project aimed to engage a broad audience in four contemporary scientific disciplines that each in turn investigated the complex connections between body and environment. The project revolved around a science, art and history exhibition at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen that opened in the fall of 2021 but also involved numerous other activities before, during and after the exhibition, including the publication at hand.
This publication documents the intricate process of realising The World is in You through the recollections and reflections of the core people involved in the project.
