Did you know that the embalmed body of the British philosopher Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) is dressed and displayed in a glass cabinet in the halls of University College, London? It was stipulated in his will. Per his request, he's been posed "in the attitude

in which I am sitting when engaged in thought." His corpse also presides over an annual meeting of administrators. In this photo, I'm standing in front of one of the paintings of a young man from my show Alter Ego. I'm currently curating a show called Neocon.
