CMCI Senior Lecturer Dr Ruth Adams has had an essay published in the Victoria and Albert Museum‘s Annual Review 2014-15. Ruth was invited to contribute a piece which critically considered some of the V&A’s more politically engaged activities of the past year, in particular the exhibitions ‘Disobedient Objects‘ and ‘All of This Belongs to You‘.
The V&A’s Annual Review is intended primarily for a readership of the museum’s trustees, donors and supporters, together with people who work within the arts, government and academia. It seeks to reflect and encourage thought and discussion around the museum’s activities, rather than simply communicate the museum’s achievements. It is edited by Tom Phongsathorn, an alumnus of the MA in Cultural & Creative Industries, who also edits the V&A Magazine.
Our image shows some of the ‘how to’ guides for protesters distributed as part of the ‘Disobedient Objects’ exhibition.
