Question authority at this British Museum exhibition
What is it?
2-for-1 tickets to this gripping new exhibition on political dissent through the ages.
Ian Hislop has had a cheeky rummage through the British Museum’s storage boxes and with his findings he’s curated this new show at the British Museum. Hislop has uncovered a treasure trove of dissenting objects, and the exhibition acts as an alternative version of former British Museum Director Neil MacGregor’s ‘A History of the World in 100 Objects’.
A wide variety of items are on display – from graffiti on a Babylonian brick and a banknote with hidden rude words to satirical Turkish shadow puppets and a recently acquired ‘pussy’ hat worn on a women’s march. The exhibition allows us to delve deeper into the stories these fascinating objects tell – some serious, some funny, but all with much conviction. Ultimately, it’ll show us that questioning authority and breaking rules are simply an integral part of what makes us human.
