NYC: Liquid Assets with Sophia Roosth & Anicka Yi via Triple Canopy

Sophia Roosth, an anthropologist, will present a primer on sperm shopping. She’ll guide the audience through one of the popular online cryobanks that entice subscribers with detailed donor profiles and stock photos of happy (typically white, straight) families. As she browses, Roosth will speak with Anicka Yi, an artist, about the role of eugenics in shaping our biotech-fueled “procreative fantasies,” drawing on her Triple Canopy essay on her own effort to reconcile “e-cummerce” and queer family-making. Roosth will also consult with guests who are searching for the right donors (or gametes).
