Episode 40: A very human exhibition Museopunks

    • Technology

Being Human, the new permanent gallery at Wellcome Collection, explores what it means to be human in the 21st century. In creating the exhibition, the Wellcome Collection worked with two advisory panels - one composed of scientists, and the other of artists, activists and consultants, convened in collaboration with the University of Leicester’s Research Centre for Museums and Galleries, focussed on the representation of disability and difference. The resultant experience embodies the idea that all can and should feel valued and connected.

In this episode, the Punks speak with Clare Barlow, curator of the exhibition, and Richard Sandell, Professor of Museum Studies and co-director of RCMG at the University of Leicester, about the intentionality, processes and practices that have shaped this exhibition.
