Description:


    This animation is based on the archival materials of the Uppsala Institute for racial biology in Sweden, a department which was to be closed down in the 1960s. Today, in this same building, researchers are manipulating genetic material by dis-secting DNA.

    WANTED deals with human classification based on outward appearance. Does modern genetic manipulation justify the pre-vious century’s racial research?
