Gläserne Mensch (Glass Man) – the first transparent human model complete with bones, muscles and arteries.
Dresden’s Deutsche Hygiene-Museum was founded in 1911 by mouthwash magnate Dr. Karl August Lingner to have ignorant people better understand their own health.
The permanent exhibits revolve around aspects of the human being: scientific images, life and death, diet, sexuality, the brain, motion and beauty. This museum is particularly famous for playing a significant role in the changed view of hygiene “from a scientific concept into a global movement” and how it was “subsequently used by the National Socialism in Nazi-Germany and the socialism of the former DDR as an essential part of both ideologies”. Currently there’s an exhibit on the history of the museum at Marres Centre for Contemporary Culture in the Netherlands.
