In this talk I will sketch a geometrically flavoured proof of the Madsen-Weiss theorem based on work by Eliashberg-Galatius-Mishachev. In order to prove the triviality of appropriate relative bordism groups, in a first step a variant of the wrinkling theorem shows that one can reduce to consider fold maps (with additional structure). In a subsequent step a geometric version of the Harer stability theorem is used to get rid of the folds via surgery. I will focus on this second step.
