Event description

This event - which takes place as part of the Being Human Festival - is run in conjunction with the ‘Conceiving histories’ exhibition, featuring work by visual artist, Anna Burel, which has emerged from her collaboration with academic and literary historian, Isabel Davis.

Come and hear about the making of the work and some of the research behind it. This event will be exploring the curious material history of un-pregnancy, that is of pregnancies feigned, imagined, hidden and difficult to diagnose, and how this history can be re-imagined and materialised to think about conception and fertility today.

This event is free, but please reserve your place via the Being Human Festival page here.
