Now that the team of researchers at the Eindhoven University of Technology (whom we previously collaborated with to design a prototype for an artificial womb) has been awarded a €2.9 million grant to develop a working prototype of their artificial womb, this breakthrough raises ethical questions about the future of baby making on a global scale.

Therefore the BBC caught up with NNN designer Lisa Mandemaker, as part of their BBC 100 Women of 2019, on what it means to design an artificial womb.

The interview was recored during the buildup of Reprodutopia, our latest exhibition that presents thought-provoking visions of reproductive technologies.

What? The Reprodutopia Clinic expo
When? From 9 October  — 30 November 2019
Where? Droog Amsterdam

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
