As seen at the Museum of Natural History in Wiesbaden (Naturhistorische Sammlungen im Museum Wiesbaden). The new exhibition focuses on aesthetics rather than the systematic aspects of biology – which I think is different. If you happen to be in Wiesbaden, this museum would be my recommendation for a rainy day. In fact, a friend’s ten-year-old son bears witness to children enjoying it too.
Once in the museum, even animals turn into objects. Should you like to read about the role of photography in establishing objectivity here is book I can recommend: Lorraine Daston and Peter Galison, Objectivity.
