New exhibition - Provocative plastics?

Our new exhibition Provocative plastics? discuss, debate,deliberate is now open.

Plastics are used worldwide in design and manufacturing. Their use divides opinion and has many proponents and undoubtedly as many opponents. Nevertheless it is a group of materials which has enabled social, technological and medical advancement and offers infinite possibilities to designers.

This exhibition showcases objects from MoDiP’s collections which illustrate differing comments on design and plastics made by historical and contemporary artists, designers and social commentators. 

One of the objects on display - a packing strapping basket.

Both design and plastics elicit strong opinion. Do you see creativity or kitsch? Problems or opportunities? Waste or resources? Here is an opportunity for you to discuss, debate, and deliberate.

Have your say: Fill in a postcard in the museum or send us a tweet including the case no. @MoDiPAUB
