We’ve long dreamed of being able to remake ourselves – from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to today’s superhuman machines and mutants.

In our final event, geneticist and author Adam Rutherford, presenter of the BBC’s Inside Science, talks to Beth Singler, who studies the social implications of almost-human machines, and Joanna Kavenna, author of A Field Guide to Reality. Is it time we left our traditional ideas of humanity behind?

Standard tickets: £25
Event ticket price includes an entry ticket for the exhibition (standard price £14.50).
