The co-curated exhibition Toxic Transits investigates the relations between toxicity, body, and environment in a more-than-human world. Central to the exhibition is its exploration of toxicity as both an agent and concept that disrupts dichotomous worldviews, revealing how the human body and non-human natures are intimately co-constituted.


The artworks in the exhibition, set in dialogue with historical books and material from the Hagströmer Medico-Historical library’s collections, reveal deep-running interconnections between life and non-life; exposure and protection; tenderness and morbidity. The exhibition is an invitation to think with toxicity, to follow its transits and what they make visible in the proximities between bodies and environments.
