SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30: 4-7PM
The Anatomical Venus Talk and Signing
Free, non-ticketed book signing event for the latest title from Morbid Anatomy Museum’s co-founder & creative director Joanna Ebenstein — The Anatomical Venus: Wax, God, Death & the Ecstatic. The book was the product of 10 years of research, image collection and photography.

Ebenstein will speak on the fascinating life and afterlives of The Anatomical Venus — a life-sized dissectible wax woman with Venetian glass eyes, real human hair and strings of pearls created in late eighteenth-century Florence as the centerpiece of the first truly public science museum. Once seen as an ideal way to entice a general public into the study of human anatomy, today, she also confounds, troubling our neat categorical divides between life and death, body and soul, effigy and pedagogy, entertainment and education, kitsch and art.
