KÖRPERWELTEN & Der Zyklus des Lebens

In the organizer's words:

The exhibition"BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life" by scientist Dr. Gunther von Hagens and curator Dr. Angelina Whalley shows our bodies in the cycle of creation and decay. Thematically specialized and with a large number of real human exhibits, the exhibition takes visitors on an exciting journey under the skin. The exhibition "BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life" and in particular the individual stages of the development of the human body and its changes over the course of time - from conception to old age - invite visitors to take a closer look at their own lives.

KÖRPERWELTEN is an exhibition that changes the way we look at ourselves and the way we live. More than 55 million people around the globe have already embarked on this journey of self-discovery through the human body with BODY WORLDS. The fascinating anatomical specimens, including many full-body plastinates, provide comprehensive insights into the complex structure of our inner life and explain the functioning and interaction of body systems and organs, as well as common diseases, in an easily understandable way.

The plastinates shown in the KÖRPERWELTEN exhibition come from the body donation program of the Institute for Plastination in Heidelberg, in which more than 21,000 donors are now registered.
