New art exhibition exploring the autonomy of childbirth through 5 artistic collaborations between artists and childbirth professionals
Birth Rites: 20 September – 30 November 2008
at The Manchester Museum UK
Birth is the common thread that unites us all but are all births really equal? How free are women to give birth in a way they want and where they want?
The result of a pioneering collaboration between artists and childbirth professionals. For the first time, four artists and one documentary filmmaker have closely collaborated with these childbirth professionals to create a series of artworks exploring childbirth today.
