Mirrors expand our sense of reality and allow us to observe our own bodies. Whereas we can be seen by all other persons directly, reflection provides the only possible view of ourselves: when we are mirrored, photographed, filmed or portrayed. The exhibition "MIRROR IMAGES in Art and Medicine" starting in November 2015 in Berlin at the Museum of Medical History at the Charité and in the Project Space of the Schering Foundation will combine artistic works with scientific experiments and objects, in an investigation of the manner in which we experience our own bodies in space.
