Making Babies? An exposition about egg donation and reproductive policies

23.11.2022 11:26

The Kornhausforum in Bern, Switzerland, is showing an exposition by Laura Perler, a member of Branco Weiss Alumna Carolin Schurr’s research group at the University of Bern. The exhibition “Making Babies?” shows photographs, audio and video material on the topic of egg donation and reproductive policies. Visitors get an insight into the lives and motives of egg donors from Spain, into laboratories and operating rooms of a reproduction clinic, and get to know a recipient who goes abroad for an “egg donation” from Switzerland. The look at this reproductive technology is also a look at current social conditions and raises complex political questions that the exhibited amounts try to explore. “Making Babies?” will be opened with a panel discussion on November 24, 5 p.m. CET, and will end January 14. The exposition has already been shown in Berlin. Spain and Belgium will follow.
