Henry Wellcome's collection of medical curiosities was more encyclopaedic than most - by the time he died in 1936, it occupied five times the space of the Louvre - and more touchingly ineffectual. His aim, in spending the fortune he and his partner Silas Burroughs amassed from the sale of pills, was to document the ways in which men have sought to 'preserve life and health'. Hari Kunzru challenges himself to use a typewriter designed for a patient with no arms, and Peter Blegvad constructs a quirky private mammary museum, with breast pumps, nipple shields and rubber teats. Tobias Hill ponders the glutinous, repellent resin bubbling from an inductor coil.

Businessman and philanthropist Sir Henry Wellcome—co-founder of Burroughs Wellcome & Co., one of the first giant pharmaceutical companies—was fascinated by anthropology and the history of medicine. His great ambition was to trace the story of the human body, in sickness and in health, through the entire sweep of history. By the time he died in 1936, he had built up one of the largest and most extraordinary museum collections in the world. Estimated to be five times the size of the Louvre, his collection is now scattered among a hundred institutions, including the Wellcome Trust, the British Museum, and the Science Museum in London. Beautiful, mysterious, and often disturbing, the objects Wellcome collected range from the ancient to the magical, the religious to the scientific. The Phantom Museum offers some personal responses to this vast but little-known collection. Playful and thought-provoking contributions combine text and images, fact and fiction, to consider how objects can be read depending on who views them and when.
