The death of an exhibition — but no animals were harmed in the process

Posted Apr 07 2010 8:55am

Museum websites use to write about the birth of exhibitions, but rarely about their death. So let’s try the death-approach for once.

Last Sunday, Split & Splice: Fragments from the Age of Biomedicine closed to the public, and we are now busy taking it down. Below are some images from the deconstruction work.

Konservator Nanna Gerdes pakker genstande, der tilhører Dansk Datahistorisk Selskab. Our conservator, Nanna Gerdes is packing artefacts borrowed from the Danish Society for Computer History.

Student assistant Anders Nøhr is cleaning after the rabbits.
Også en slags museumsarbejde: Studentermedhjælp Anders Nøhr muger ud. Sporene af museumskaninerne skal fjernes.

The two exhibition rabbits (Split and Splice) on their way to a new home on a farm on the island of Lolland in southern Denmark Kaninerne Split og Splejs på vej til deres nye hjem. De to udstillingskaniner har fået et nyt hjem på en gård på Lolland.

In other words, no animals were harmed, neither in the construction nor in the destruction of the exhibition.
