Prof. Christian Thomsen, cannibalism expert in conversation with Dr. Jeanette Zwingenberger, curator.

Thirty years ago Christian Thomsen published a fascinating study on the taboo subject of cannibalism from the view of literature, film-theory, art history and anthropology and illuminated all facets of this brutal phenomenon. Since then he has become an expert in this area and has illustrated by way of countless examples that this topic reaches far into all areas of human existence. (Menschenfresser.
