Ancestry DNA testing has been widely embraced as a new way to understand our identity. But how does this removal of identity from its narrative and social dimension impact on understandings of race and relationships?

About

Artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy are each taking multiple Ancestry DNA tests. In this special event, they will present their findings and discuss the bioethical issues with a specially convened ethics committee of medical experts, geneticists and artists, chaired by ethicist Professor Bobbie Farsides.
