    The exhibition “Muscle Memory” is a multi-layered investigation into the notion of muscle memory, which is defined in neuroscience as a type of movement that becomes familiar to the muscles through repetition over time. It gives a metaphorical approach to how structures of power create and manipulate the memories of individuals through the biological mechanisms of their very own bodies. In doing so, the exhibition revisits the historical background of the Bethanien Hospital building as the ‘body’ of the project, incorporating the building and its vicinity into the exhibition as an embodiment of the muscle memory.
