Major exhibition Identity: Eight Rooms, Nine Lives
The Wellcome Collection
November 2009-6 April 2010
What influences or
determines our sense of who we are? What makes one person distinct from
another? How does science inform human identity? This major exhibition explores
the tension between the way we view ourselves and how others see us.

Malherbe, who used the alias Marcel Moore, moved to Jersey in 1937 and remained
there during the island's occupation by the Nazis. This UK alien registration
card bears Cahun's birth name of Lucie Schwob.
