The exhibition project How to (Not) Remember Our Bodies is the outcome of a long-term artistic research on the topic of body memory in the field of reproductive medicine. The exhibition will include a newly produced film by the artist focusing on both the specific individual and collective experiences of reproductive medicine and its historical and political conditioning. It will thus build on the previous film, Uteruses and Brains, which was part of an exhibition at the Kurzor gallery curated by Jan Zálešák in 2022. In contrast to the previous film, the new film will draw on the subjective experiences of women participants in reproductive medicine in the context of Czech and Czechoslovak gynaecology, as well as historical material obtained from the NFA's medical film archive, information gathered from research at the Medical Museum in Prague, and ongoing consultations with experts in the field of bodily memory.
