Disobedient Objects enough. It's on until the 1st February 2015 at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
"Solidarność badge in V&A show ... Boy does that bring back childhood memories of Poland under the communists ..."
I spent a lot of time in Poland as a child.
As a schoolgirl. I also boycotted South African apples ....
Greek archaeologists recently had a huge pay cut, and British curators also seem to be at risk of one.
I did organise a little protest outside the embassy two+ years ago, but I'm afraid that did little good.
(Yup - never met any of them, never dated anyone, don't know what a sheep is).
Incidentally, the tear-gas mask instructions - and several others, such as the Flone - can were given away in the exhibition, or can be downloaded here.
And I blame the Palestinians ;-)
There was a large pro Palestine demonstration in London that day. I'd popped out to buy groceries, and ended up on the 'wrong' side of Oxford Street to go home so I watched and waited for it to pass. And waited. And waited ... then went clothes shopping to pass the time.
Take this photo - taken out of context it could look like the destruction of property, the beginning of a riot perhaps:
The protestor wanted to document his protest in that most modern of ways - through social media.
There are a lot of idiots on the internet, and sometimes criticism can go over the top and turn into threats or hate speech. But I'd rather live in the world where people can voice their views than go back to the sorts of societies many of the objects in the exhibition were protesting. It doesn't mean I have to listen to everyone's views but ... I'll always fight for their right to express them.
