PUBLIC TALK: The Museum of Human Disease; Know Your Enemy
|The Museum of Human Disease; Know Your Enemy : Friday afternoon seminar at SymbioticA
This talk will be about the tension the Museum of Human Disease faces between acts of law and being interesting. And will link this to the types of ways art fits into trying to resolve these tensions.
Derek Williamson is currently manger of the Museum of Human Disease at the University of New South Wales, Australia's only publicly accessible pathology collection attracting 10,000 visitors a year. With a background in science, science education and science communication Derek tries to balance the need for didactic messages with interaction which challenge audiences to think differently about the implications of knowledge for their lives.
