Summary:
How did the Swiss organ donation crisis come about? Despite reforms and advertising campaigns, from the late '80s, Swiss transplant medicine began to lament an increasing mistrust in organ donation and falling donor numbers. Simon Hofmann throws light on the role of doctors, nurses, family members and donees, but also of the media, politicians and the pharmaceutical industry. In doing so, he draws out the relations between hospital practices, public debates, and fictitious narratives about organ smuggling. He tells a complex and contradictory story of modern biomedicine at the edge of life and death, which is shaped as much by economic calculations as by utopian hope and traumatic fears.
Wie kam es zur Krise der Organspende in der Schweiz? Trotz Reformen und Werbekampagnen beklagte die Transplantationsmedizin ab Ende der 1980er-Jahre ein zunehmendes Misstrauen und sinkende Spenderzahlen.Simon Hofmann beleuchtet die Rollen von Ärzten, Pflegenden, Angehörigen und Empfängern, aber auch von Medien, Politikern und der Pharmaindustrie. Dabei setzt er die Praxis in Krankenhäusern mit öffentlichen Debatten und fiktiven Narrativen über Organhandel in Beziehung. Er erzählt die komplexe und widersprüchliche Geschichte einer modernen Biomedizin an der Grenze von Leben und Tod, die ebenso von ökonomischem Kalkül wie von utopischen Hoffnungen und traumatischen Ängsten geprägt ist.
