Ikon/Icon: A Visual History of the Fetus, with Swedish/Eng subs
“Icon” is a visual history of the fetus which explores how we have come to think of the fetus as ourselves unborn. This animated documentary takes us through 500 years of culture, science and body politics-and the power of images.
Icon was created in cooperation with the research project Medicine at the Borders of Life at the Department of History of Science and Ideas, Uppsala University. With generous funding from Riksbankens jubileumsfund; the Department of History of Science and Ideas, Uppsala University; Ottarfonden; and Stiftelsen Fritt Ord. © 2019
