"The Romantic Disease: An Artistic Investigation of Tuberculosis" is a highly successful solo exhibition by Anna Dumitriu, an ‘open lab’ workshop, and a one day symposium which took place at Watermans in London, UK, funded by The Wellcome Trust between January and March 2014 and which is now touring internationally to the Theatrum Anatomicum at Waag Society, Amsterdam in the Netherlands in June - July 2014, and then to Art Laboratory Berlin in Germany in September - November 2014.

The exhibition takes the form of an art/science investigation into mankind’s strange relationship with ‘the Romantic Disease’ Tuberculosis (TB) from early superstitions about the disease, through the development of antibiotics, to the latest research into whole genome sequencing of bacteria. Explore the links above to learn more about the ideas and artworks in the exhibition as well as the events programme. Funded by The Wellcome Trust and supported by the UK CRC Modernising Medicial Microbiology Project. For more information on the work of Anna Dumitriu see www.normalflora.co.uk

Anna Dumitriu’s exhibition “The Romantic Disease: An Artistic Investigation of Tuberculosis” culminated in a successful,  fascinating and accessible multidisciplinary symposium on World TB day, 24th March 2014 at Watermans in London, UK. The event brought together the project team and experts to tell stories of their own relationships to the disease across art, science, ethics and healthcare, with opportunities for debate and discussion.
