Abstract

Referring to Ivan Illich's Limits to Medicine (1975), this essay is an inquiry into an expansion of "metropolitan medical civilization," in particular into a "novel image of death" exported as "a major force in cultural colonization." The data and inspiration for the essay came from the research on Boven Digoel, a Dutch colonial internment camp in New Guinea, 1927-43.
