Educational, and startling insight into the human body and movement dynamics. A must see at least once, Gunther Von Hagen's work has taken physiology out of the lab and into the public domain. Not macabre, its fascinating and thought provoking.More

It is not free, but worth every penny 😁 Check their website, sometimes they do an auction for the tickets and you can get them on much lower price 😉
