‘Collective Womb’ By Ximena Alarcón

Commemorating 150 years of the construction of the London Underground, the Centre for Metropolitan History (IHR), in association with the London Transport Museum organised the conference ‘Going Underground – travel beneath the metropolis 1863-2013’. Here perspectives from artists, architects, historians, engineers, and commuters were brought together to reflect on the past, present and future of this iconic urban infrastructure.

Here you can listen to the podcast of the paper I presented in the conference on the 17th of January, 2013:

Many thanks to the organisers for bringing together all the people who have been fascinated with the underground environment.
