Anthropological Exhibit at Musee du Quai Branly

“I am not Alone in My Body” is the central theme of Musee du Quai Branly’s first anthropological exhibit organized a by an anthropological team led by Stephane Breton.
The premise here is that no human society looks upon the body as an entity of strictly individual thought and action – according to the description of this exhibit on Musee du Quai Branly’s website.
You can read more about this original idea at their site.

Meanwhile, it might lead to some questions such as “Do We Really Own our Bodies?” Food for thought. i.e. You have the right to donate your organs, but can you sell them? In some countries, you have the right to terminate pregnancies – in other countries you don’t – or only under specific conditions. You do not have the right to end your own life in many countries. You do not have the right in some countries to sell your blood.
