"Bodies", the scientific and educational exhibition that shows real human bodies and has been in more than 40 countries, returns to Bogotá from the first of June until next August 25 in zone 7 of Unicentro.

In this exhibition, spectators will be able to see organs and real bodies that have been carefully preserved.

The company Hill + Knowlton Strategies detailed in a statement that it is the most visited exhibition of that type in history, with more than 30 million viewers in the world.

"It is an educational and scientific exhibition that in addition to teaching and sensitizing the public about the various anatomical features we have, seeks to promote the importance of caring for something as apparently resistant as the body," said the curator, Hernan Ganchegui.

In the show the spectators will be able to observe real organs and bodies that have been "carefully preserved" through the plastination.

This technique of preservation of biological material was created in Protected content German artist and scientist Gunther Von Hagens and consists of extracting body fluids (water and lipids) by means of solvents such as cold and warm acetone to replace them with rigid silicone elastic resins of epoxies.

This time the sample offers a guided tour by health professionals that will show the difference between an organ affected by some disease and another that is not.
