THE ART OF HEALING

AUSTRALIAN INDIGENOUS BUSH MEDICINE

 

The Art of Healing takes place directly within the specimen hall of the Berlin Museum of Medical History at the Charité. A deliberate intervention, the works of contemporary Indigenous artists from Australia open up a completely different perspective. Born, raised, and at home in their communities, scattered throughout today’s Australia, the artists are absorbed in their local cultures of remedies and healing. By visualising their rich and beautiful world of healing plants, they point to a healing tradition which is tens of thousands years older than that of the West.
