The Anarchist Coloring Book

"This blog documents things that are interesting, creepy and often disturbing. It contains posts of videos, photos, artwork and anything else that I find worthy to the collection. Anarchist Coloring Book is inspired by Adam Parfrey's Apocalypse Culture collections, the Mütter Museum and the general creepiness we stumble upon in everyday life.

The present author attempts to detach himself from the subjects. Often little to no commentary is provided, this is why Wikipedia descriptions are widely used."

OBJECTIFY THIS: Female Anatomy Dissected and Displayed

Historically, female anatomy has been represented in medical illustrations predominantly as a variation of the male form in terms of reproductive organs and surface anatomy. There are a multitude of societal, cultural, and religious reasons that have established this ideal, in addition to the fine line between female anatomy and eroticism. This show will compel viewers to question the objectivity surrounding 'female anatomy' and define–or re–define–their own perceptions through the art, perspectives, literature, and live burlesque performances featured during the opening event."

The Man as Industrial Palace: Animated

"The visual crossover between industrialization and science in Fritz Kahn's artwork demonstrates surprisingly accurately how human nature became culturally encoded by placing the knowledge in an industrial modernity of machine analogues. He produced lots of illustrations that drew a direct functional analogy between human physiology and the operation of contemporary technologies. Therefore, by illustrating the body as a factory, Kahn was able to relate the body's complex organic interior to the industrialized space so common in society during that period of time (the poster was created in 1926).

From the moment on that Henning Lederer got to know Kahn's poster 'Man as Industrial Palace' in 2006, he had the idea to animate this complex and strange way of explaining the functions of a body. He wanted to continue Fritz Kahn's act of replacing a biological with a technological structure by transferring this depiction with the help of motion graphics and animation."

Body painting helps anatomy lessons

"Students learn human anatomy better when they can paint body parts on a real live body, one Australian expert says.

Professor Paul McMenamin of the University of Western Australia reports on the use of body painting in anatomy classes in the journal Anatomical Sciences Education."

Communicating the Modern Body: Fritz Kahn's Popular Images of Human Physiology as an Industrialized World

"The visualization of the human body has always been a highly popular affair, and popular science writing has been particularly perceptive as to how new media has revolutionized science. This article analyzes the intertwining of science, culture, and technology by investigating the lavishly illustrated publications of Fritz Kahn, arguably one of the most successful popular science writers internationally between 1920 and 1960. His illustrations developed a specific style of visualization that positioned the human body firmly in an industrial modernity of machine analogues, which he eventually copyrighted as a product line. This visual crossover between industrialization and science demonstrates surprisingly accurately how human nature becomes historically contingent and culturally encoded."
