Museum Catharijneconvent Utrecht
Temporary exhibition 2020-2021
An immersive journey through the body perception of the Middle Ages.
This exhibition shows Christian artifacts from the late Middle Ages that depict the body in unexpected and extreme ways. The collection is curated from all over Europe, including pieces from the British Library and the French Louvre.
To guide the guests through the collection, we created an immersive experience that leads through different parts of the body.
Guests start their journey with an audiovisual introduction where they meet important experts, before travelling through the themed spaces BLOOD, HAIR, HEAD and SKIN.
As the grand finale, the exhibition ends at the fountain of blood and milk. Guests can scan QR codes throughout the journey to listen to the stories behind the objects.
Due to the corona outbreak, we have adjusted the design to comply with the latest safety requirements.
