Revital Cohen artwork
Disclosure Case (part of the Genetic Heirloom Project series)
Should you tell your family about diseases they could inherit from you?
Artist Revital Cohen has created an imaginary modern-day ‘Pandora’s box’. Your children can choose whether or not to open it for genetic information and experimental therapies.
As society increasingly defines our identities by the sequences of our genes, must we consider if the most powerful legacies we can give our offspring are health and happiness rather than material wealth?
