ATLAS OF QUEER ANATOMY
The standards in classical medical anatomy cause discrimination and create serious problems in (access to)
clinical treatments. with the Atlas of Queer Anatomy, designer Kuang-Yi Ku and medical professor Henry de Vries
challenge Western, white and heteronormative dominance in anatomical education. The visualisations offer an
ironic reflection on the still widely used textbook ‘Atlas of Human Anatomy’, (Frank H. Netter, 1957). Kuang-Yi Ku
and Henry de Vries want to increase the inclusiveness of anatomy within and outside medicine. The project
includes workshops in which young doctors and creatives are invited to make their own queer anatomical
collages, which are then incorporated into the atlas.
