"Body of Knowledge: A History of Anatomy (in 3 Parts)" explored the act of anatomizing not as a process of mapping a finite arrangement of bodily structures, but as a complex social and cultural activity. By means of a diachronic perspective, the exhibit narrative cut through the multiplicity of anatomical practices, presenting three important moments in the history of anatomy: sixteenth century dissections and anatomical drawings, nineteenth century anatomical practices, and contemporary use of both cadavers and digital technology for anatomic education. "Body of Knowledge" attempted to capture the complexity of the many people, places, and meanings involved in human dissection.
