How do museums today handle the material and visual heritage of contemporary medical and health science and technology? How do curators wield the increasing amount and kinds of more or less intangible and invisible scientific, medical and digital objects? Which intellectual, conceptual, and practical questions does this challenge give rise to?
We're aiming for two intensive days with visually enhanced presentations, good discussions and excellent food in beautiful surroundings.
