A story of «longue durée» of the exhibition regimes of the human and the human body. From the cabinets of curiosities of the 17nth and 18th centuries to university classrooms of the 20th century, through surgery colleges, colonial exhibitions, circuses and cemeteries of the 19th century. A volume with dozens of color illustrations and 9 case studies focused on Barcelona and Madrid allow us to approach with a historical look the current controversies about the exhibition of human bodies in museums and other public spaces. «In our time, while debates are taking place around the exhibition of human remains in museums, we attend the public success of exhibits of human remains halfway between scientific dissemination and the entertainment business. This book brings together various historical studies that allow a plurality of approaches to changing social and cultural conditions that have known the circulation and exhibition of human remains from «real» bodies, and their representations, as well as the arguments that justify them or question.» (HKB Translation) –Verso Cover.
