Chapter Summary

What the inner body is to us largely depends on what takes place outside its boundaries. To the question whether and how bodies are - scientifically, artistically, discursively, institutionally - mediated, the new medical visualization techniques add the question whether and how they are mediatized. Anatomical theatres, medical atlases and ultrasound machines have in common that they are not only tools for investigation or instruction, but serve as representation and communication media as well and can be analysed as such. This chapter provides an overview of how the other chapters of the book are organized.

Keywords: artisticrepresentation; inner body; medical visualization
