Library Insights: Anatomical Fictions - Representing the vagina



Thursday 28 September 2017


Brazilian sculptor Juliana Cerqueira Leite will present a performative talk on her artist book A Potential Space recently acquired by the Wellcome Library. Her book is a work of ‘anatomical fiction’ that re-imagines how the vagina is represented. The talk will be followed by a Q&A with curator Nora Heidorn to further explore the medical gaze onto the female body.
