Trotted off to the Wellcome Collection today to see the Forensics: Anatomy of Crime. Here’s why you should go:
#1 it’s free
#2 slices of brain with bullet trajectory burned through the tissue
#3 Original, from-the-slab pathologist’s sketch of one of Jack the Ripper’s victims
#4 How to tell a male skull from a female
#5 Glessner Lee’s ‘Nutshell’ studies of crime scenes
#6 The reason I went in the first place, to see the most incredible installation by Kameric about the horrific cultural, social and emotional legacy of the Bosnian War. Beyond powerful.
