Two medical-historical exhibitions in Basel and Pratteln. Theme Basel: "Working on the Un-Knowledge. Basel medical stories from the last 500 years" from 21.1.-10.4.22
Medicine is omnipresent, in times of Corona this becomes abundantly clear. Laboratories analyze and interpret, medical knowledge is published, discussed and sometimes revised in dense succession and in large numbers. Hospitals are testing therapies and pharmaceutical companies are developing vaccines in the shortest possible time. At the same time, the public discusses the results of medicine and argues about their significance.
Rarely has the work on the unknowable been as visible as it has been in recent months. The exhibition presents selected episodes from the history of medicine in Basel to illustrate the process of knowledge creation, which is seldom a linear one and is hardly ever without errors and aberrations, without disputes and controversy.
An exhibition by teamstratenwerth in collaboration with the Philosophicum Basel.
