On September 29, 2021, “The World is in You“ opens at Kunsthal Charlottenborg — this year’s major autumn exhibition in collaboration with Medical Museion. Through science, art and history, it will explore how our bodies are connected to the universe, and will showcase new bio-art, historic artifacts, meteorites and a 7-meter diameter rotating globe.
In the exhibition, visitors will encounter new bio-art, historical objects from Medical Museion’s collections, paintings and video installations, meteorites, the scent of cherries, water pipes from the 18th century and a 7-meter diameter rotating globe. Each in their own way, these works and objects will bring them back to a core question: what does the world do to us?
