3D printing opens up a world of new possibilities (printed organs or guns, anyone?), but material reproduction is nothing new. Dr. Kate Nichols explores how Victorian anxieties about plaster casting sculpture might make us look afresh at our own concerns around reproductive technologies. Join us afterwards for drinks in our Cast Gallery!

This event is part of the Festival of Ideas and Curating Cambridge programmes.

For adults. Free of charge.

Book tickets here. Please note that bookings open on Monday 22nd September at 10am.
