This exhibition at the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography (Oxford University) explores the serpentine making and knowing practices in ethnography and neurosurgery within the Neurosurgery Department at Charité-Universitätsmedizin in Berlin. All exhibits are live field notes entirely executed on-site by Dr. Maxime Le Calvé. They were shared immediately with his epistemic partners, part of a graphic ethnographic workflow.
Take the tour! The QR codes will lead you to webpages containing the title and an audioguide for each picture.
Note the exhibition is held at the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography (9-30 November 2023), and visits would need to be arranged. Please inquire about visits with Maxime Le Calvé at maxime.le.calve(at)hu-berlin.de
