9789053565162: Anatomy Live: Performance and the Operating Theatre (Mediamatters)

Gross anatomy, the study of anatomical[-]structures that can be seen by unassisted[-]vision, has long been a subject of fascination[-]for artists. For most modern viewers,[-]however, the anatomy lesson hardly seems[-]the proper breeding ground for the hybrid[-]workings of art and theory. We forget that,[-]in its early stages, anatomy pursued the[-]highly theatrical spirit of Renaissance[-]science, as painters such as Rembrandt and[-]Da Vinci and medical instructors shared[-]audiences devoted to the workings of the[-]human body. Anatomy Live turns our modern notions of the dissecting table on[-]its head using anatomical theatre as a[-]means of obtaining a fresh perspective on[-]representations of the body, conceptions of[-]subjectivity, and own knowledge about[-]science and the stage. Critically dissecting[-]well-known exhibitions like Body Worlds[-]and The Visible Human Project and[-]featuring contributions from a number[-]of diverse scholars, Anatomy Live is not to[-]be missed by anyone with an interest in[-]this engaging intersection of science and[-]artistic practice. This title is available in the OAPEN Library - http://www.oapen.org.
