Working Stiffs

Christoph Reiners on the Bodily Disrespect Displayed in Our Museums

It was in 2006 that my 13-year-old son won the regional science fair and thus qualified for the National Science Fair. The participants were honored by the British Columbia Innovation Council, but not by arranging a meeting with some of its best scientists or by opening doors to research institutions that normally remain closed.

The council planned for them to see an exhibit of human cadavers at the local science center, which up to this point had catered only to children. It was then that I became aware of Body Worlds, Bodies the Exhibition, and similar exhibits.
