THE EXHIBITION

BODY WORLDS: THE RHYTHM OF LIFE is a convergence of aesthetic anatomy, findings in health and wellness, immersive multimedia, and narrative storytelling. It shows the possibility of living mindfully, with meaning and vitality, by refracting the story of life and self-actualization.

The exhibition shows the fragility, complexity, resilience and strength of the human body. The exhibition presents the body in health and distress, its vulnerabilities and potential as well as many of the challenges the human body faces navigating the 21st century.

The exhibition asks you to consider the frenetic pace of modern living and its effect on the body and mind, and proposes that living with pulsating vitality can be achieved by embracing healthy lifestyles and living to optimal tempo, neither too fast nor too slow, but to the beat of your own life.

BODY WORLDS reveals the human body from the structural to the cellular level and shows the inner body through detailed anatomical studies, intricate dissections, and aesthetic compositions that resonate with every visitor.

BODY WORLDS combine the study of human anatomy and multi-faceted aspects of modern life to create an emotional, philosophical and educational experience.

Plastination was invented by Dr. Gunther von Hagens in 1977 at the University of Heidelberg, Germany and has continuously been developed it since then.

Plastination is a technique that stops the decomposition of the dead body and produces solid, odorless and durable anatomical specimens for scientific and medical training.

The production of a human whole body plastinate requires approximately 1,500 working hours.
