A Guben, petite ville située à la frontière germano-polonaise, un musée hors du commun attire de plus en plus de curieux. Appelé Plastinarium, ce dernier met avant des milliers de cadavres en très bon état de conservation. 

Il y a dix ans, Gunther Von Hagens transformait une petite usine à l’abandon en galerie consacrée à la découverte du corps humain. Gunther n’est autre que le créateur de la plastination, une technique consistant à injecter silicone et autres polymères de polyuréthane afin de stopper le processus de décomposition des chairs.

Aujourd’hui, son fils Rurik le succède et propose au public un conservatoire beaucoup plus important où se tiennent environ 16 500 spécimens.

L’exposition « Body Worlds : The Happiness Project » présente actuellement aux Pays-Bas leur a permis de compter pas moins de 40 millions de visiteurs à travers le monde. Cette dernière met en avant l’influence du bonheur sur le corps humain. Il s’agit de la seule exposition au monde exclusivement basée sur un programme de donneurs.

Lors de la visite du Plastinarium vous pourrez également observer une quarantaine de scientifiques plastiner des corps en direct. Il faut compter en moyenne 1500 heures par modèles afin de le rendre le plus réaliste possible.

En exposant au public une telle collection, le Dr Von Hagens tenait avant tout à démocratiser l’anatomie.

Alors si vous décidez demain de donner votre corps à la science, voilà où vous pourriez vous retrouver.
