Recommendation: Intelligence in Lifestyle

March 1, 2010

IL, the monthly lifestyle supplement of the leading Italian financial newspaper Il Sole 24 ORE, recommended the exhibition in Berlin. Among other comments, IL notes: “What happens when we ring a bell, smell a roast, or have an erection? Jewish intellectual and gynaecologist Fritz Kahn (1888–1968) dedicated his life to explaining the human machine and its functions. It is impossible not to see these illustrations as reflections of Weimar Modernism, not to see Kahn as a pioneer of information design. The Medical Historical Museum of the Charité – founded by Rudolf Virchow, another popular educator – honors him with [the exhibition] ‘Man Machine’, a selection of his best works.”
