There is a ‘Museum of man’ in the german city Dresden. The permanent exhibition revolves around a topic that is as obvious as it is demanding: the human being.
The “Transparent Man” (the idea of transparency as well as an installation of a transparent body) serves as the symbol of this museum:
“This figure depicts the internal workings of the human body as a machine: understandable, immaculate, and, if well cared for, durable.”
Probably I’ll find a way to visit this museum.
