The Anatomy Season

A series of conversations, performances and workshops inspired by the theme of anatomy featuring artists, anatomists, medics and thinkers. The Season will take place across London in venues including Sadler’s Wells, Wellcome Collection, Hunterian Museum and Whitechapel Gallery.

How does the way that bodies are represented in medical culture affect our ways of thinking about them? How does the way anatomy is taught influence doctors attitudes towards their patients? What do artists know about anatomy? Is seeing believing?
