Disobedient Objects is a forthcoming exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum (26 July 2014 – 1 February 2015), curated by Catherine Flood and Gavin Grindon, which brings together materials related to activism and social movements from across the world. In the lead up to the opening of the exhibition, the curators have been running a blog looking at some of the items that will be on display. The latest addition to the Disobedient Objects blog is a piece by myself on the Grunwick strike and a particular banner made by striking workers, now held at the People’s History Museum in Manchester. You can find the piece here.
