Thanks to the support of the Birkbeck School of Arts, Broadly Conceived has invited artist and curator Helen Knowles to deliver a tour of the Birth Rites CollectionThere will also be an opportunity for questions and discussion.

Established in 2008, the Birth Rites Collection is the world’s first collection of contemporary art on the subject of childbirth. The collection comprises photography, sculpture, painting, artist books, print, wallpaper, drawing, new media and film. Through the public presentation of the private, taboo topic of childbirth, the collection encourages debate and awareness around childbirth practice and experience. It raises questions about biomedical management of childbirth, technologies and control in the birth room.

This is a free, online event. No prior reading is required. If you are interested in attending this event please sign-up to the Broadly Conceived mailing list.
