Wellcome Collection – Forensics: The Anatomy Of Crime


I’ve always been intrigued and attracted by serial killers stories and since I started to watch CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and other related tv shows, this kind of “obsession” grew. Basically what I find very interesting is the whole process that leads to the identification of the murder and always wanted to know a lot more about this process. Forensics: The Anatomy Of Crime (26/02-21/06) widely helped to satisfy my big curiosity about the fascinating world of forensic science and beyond.

The exhibition itinerary is divided into five stages: Crime Scene, Morgue, Laboratory, Search and for the final step, the Courtroom.  Each stage provides a lot of interesting things to see such as original evidence, archival material, photographic documentation, film footage, forensic instruments and specimens, and is rich with artworks offering both unsettling and intimate responses to traumatic events.

Talking about the place where this stunning exhibition is taking place, the Wellcome Collection is an amazing place to spend some (several hours) time. The permanent galleries offer an unusual mixture of ancient and medical artifacts and other artworks exploring “ideas about the connections between medicine, life and art”. After all, as their slogan says, the Wellcome Collection is the free destination for the incurably curious, and I higly agree with that!
