Come support our awesome fellow-reader Stef and check out this fascinating exhibit, where art and literature and science intersect! (This apparently will also give you a free peek at the creepy jars for which the Museum is famous as an added bonus.)

Exhibition & Conference PathoGraphics 2017
From October 2017 to March 2018, we will be holding an exhibition at the Berlin Museum of Medical History at the Charité to introduce the growing genre of graphic illness narratives to a wider German audience. Illustrators, doctors, cartoonists, patients, healthcare professionals, artists, authors and caregivers were invited to submit self-contained comics dealing with illness, disability or caregiving. The show includes comic art from eight different countries.
From October 27-29, 2017, the research group holds an international conference at the same venue (the Charité’s lecture hall ruin). The conference examines the ways in which knowledge and experience of illness and disability circulate within the realms of medicine, art, the personal and the cultural. Speakers will address this question from a variety of different perspectives, including literary scholarship, comics studies, media studies, disability studies, the health humanities and sociology.
