Morbid Anatomy has been surveying the interstices of art and medicine, death and culture, since 2007. Our means of communication have included a blog, a collection and research library (open to the public), classes, lectures, exhibitions, spectacles, symposia, field trips, books, parties, films and more. For a few years, we even had our very own Museum (founded with Tracy Hurley Martin) in Brooklyn, New York.
Today, Morbid Anatomy is run by its creator Joanna Ebenstein and programming director Laetitia Barbier. It can be visited seasonally (autumn and spring) at Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery's Fort Hamilton Gatehouse where they produce changing exhibitions and make available The Morbid Anatomy Library. This iteration of the library is dedicated to our beloved friend Mel Gordon (1947 - 2018)—trickster, rogue scholar of the obscure and the maligned, and an inspiration without whom Morbid Anatomy as it is today would not exist. He is very much missed.
