GENETICS. AN EXHIBITION ABOUT WHO WE ARE AND MIGHT BECOME (WORKING TITLE)

A better understanding of DNA could change the course of the world: Deadly diseases could be cured, epidemics prevented, the world's food supply secured and the fate of one's own descendants helped - that is the promise.

Rarely has the possibility of taking life into one's own hands seemed as tangible as it does today. The Deutsches Hygiene-Museum therefore sees the need for a public discussion of the opportunities and risks of genetic technologies. The planned exhibition will combine artistic positions with perspectives from the natural and cultural sciences to illustrate - in an informative and critical manner - how current genetic research has an impact in cultural, social and political contexts.
