See a new exhbition at the Victoria & Albert Museum

From July 26th, London’s Victoria & Albert Museum will be displaying its first exhibition which explores objects of art and design created by social movements as tools of protest and social change.

Disobedient Objects will demonstrate how political activism drives design and innovation, including items such as Chilean folk art textiles that document political violence and giant inflatable cobblestones thrown at demonstrations in Barcelona.

Looking at the time from the late 1970s to the present day, the exhibition explores how objects are transformed to serve a social purpose, such as the Bike Bloc, which was produced from discarded bicycles and audio equipment welded together during the 2009 Reclaim Power protests in Copenhagen.

Objects will be accompanied by newspaper cuttings, film footage and interviews and each design will also be be shown alongside the maker’s statement to explain how and why the object was created.

See the this interesting exhibit on a weekend break and book yourself into a London hotel.
