All Of This Belongs To You Exhibition at Victoria & Albert Museum

At a time when Britain will be engaged in the democratic process of an election, the Victoria & Albert Museum will examine the role of public institutions in contemporary life and what it means to be responsible for a national collection.

A series of specially commissioned interventions around the museum will raise questions about the opportunities, obligations and limits to participation in this national institution.

The exhibition will act as a laboratory for public life and explore the role of design and architecture in defining civic identity, technology, security, citizenship, democracy, the public realm and urban experience. The All Of This Belongs To You exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum is on 1 April – 19 July 2015.
