Body Worlds Interview

Categories:

Hear an interview with Gunther von Hagens the famous and often controversial anatomist behind the Body Worlds exhibit that recently made its way to The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in Portland. The exhibit showcases real human specimens preserved by replacing bodily fluids with plastics. Most of the so-called plastinates appear without their skin at various stages of dissection. Von Hagens has been hailed as a pioneer in medical education and derided as a sicko who desecrates human remains.

KBOO Art Focus host Julie Bernard and producer Julie Sabatier went to the press opening of the exhibit and interviewed Mr. von Hagens about his unique dissection methods, his thoughts on death and whether he thinks of what he does as "art."
