Review of Scientific Purposes

Here is my review of Anna Schuleit Haber’s exhibit Scientific Purposes (In which a murderous hairdresser donates his head to science, with one restriction) in Boston (March 2 – April 15, 2018).

This is part one of a series for Big, Red & Shiny. For these essays, I review a show through the lens of a particular philosopher’s theory of art. I look at this show through the catharsis theory of Aristotle with reference to Camus’ notion of the absurd.
