What does it mean to be «imperfect»?
This question was the basis for the most recent exhibition at the Mütter Museum, Imperfecta, which opened in March 2017. Imperfecta examines the history of teratology and abnormal human development through books published between 1554 and 1891 taken from the collections of the Historical Medical Library.
With speakers from speakers from National Museum of American History, New Flesh Co, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and more, explore congenital and acquired abnormalities through diverse perspectives, including medicine, economics, gender, bioethics and the historical narrative.
