    Every time I see this thread title, I think it says "Bodies the Exhumation".

    Wow that was GREAT...molding young minds...ha!! I went to the one at South Street Seaport in NYC and it was fantastic. I was even able to eat afterward and I didn't think I would. I spend what felt like hours looking at the part where all you saw were the circulatory system...also the cross sections of the brains of people who'd had strokes...whoa! how amazing we are...

    About the controversy:

    While the exhibit's representatives claim that all of the bodies were obtained through the Dalian Medical University Plastination Laboratories in China, human rights campaigners point out that Dalian University "[has] had been previously implicated in the use of executed prisoners for commercial purposes".[1] If the bodies are those Chinese prisoners whose bodies were used without their consent, it may be a violation of human rights and of Chinese law.
    The "original" show, Body Worlds, is a bit clearer ethically, but there are still some questions. Here's an article about the ethical issues surrounding these exhibits. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...toryId=5634903

    The ethics on any human body exhibit are always suspect to me.

    Dr Hagens' father was an SS officer, which adds another dimension.

    Sure!

    We might want to consider getting tickets soon, cos it sounds like it sells out fast.

    And are we looking at the Nazi-derived show in Charlotte or the Chinese Political Prisoners-show in Durham?

    Ivy and I were thinking that the Nazi one might be better (though I heard from someone else--haven't verified it yet--that they're all part of the same exhibit, which has been broken up into a bunch of smaller ones).

    The Body Works guy has a disclaimer on his website about how he would never get bodies from Chinese prisons. I think there's a rivalry between him and the Bodies: The Exhibition guy. How bizarre, how bizarre.
