Body Matters: a different perspective

So what does the museum’s part-time registrar do when she’s not at Bethlem? Answer – an MA in Museum Studies at UCL. A major part of the course is the development of an original and exciting exhibition.

Body Matters is an exhibition that approaches themes relating to health and well-being from a new perspective and in turn challenges some commonly held perceptions. This exhibition will offer a glimpse into the work of seven of UCL’s researchers who are all, in very different ways, advancing the knowledge of bones. Body Matters examines how subjects ranging from ancient tuberculosis to the future of prosthetics can have an impact on our lives and those around us.

After four months of hard work, late nights and deadlines our registrar is looking forward to it finally being finished and open to the public.

Body Matters is curated by Museum Studies students from UCL’s Institute of Archaeology, and opens to the public on 17 May 2010.
