Art, science and the future of medical collections

The relationship between art and medical science has a long history. For long that collaborative relationship was intimate as artist were of great importance depicting the findings of surgeons as medical science developed. Technological innovations like microscopy, photography meant a divide between the arts and medical sciences. Recently however artists again show a great interest in the advancements in medical science, with various motives, ranging from pure curiosity for medical practice to the search for new domains of artistic expression and representation. What on the other hand does this mean for medical science and more specific the goals - often educational - of medical collections?

Associate Professor of Medical Science Communication at Copenhagen Medical Museion Louise Emma Whiteley and Manon Parry, Assistant Professor Public History at Amsterdam University explain.

The Future of Art & Science Collaborations is a series of double lectures by eminent international researchers and practitioners from the field where art and science interact. From October 7-11 October the Lorentz Centre (Leiden) welcomes 25 researchers and practitioners to explore future benefits and challenges, processes and politics and collaborations between art and science.

The Future of Art & Science Collaborations is realized with the financial support from Creative Industries Fund, Mondriaan Fund and Stichting Doen.
