Postmodernism, Style and Subversion 1970–1990

August 14, 2012

The Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) in London is the leading museum for art and design worldwide. With the unique «Postmodernism, Style and Subversion 1970–1990» exhibition, the V&A is visiting the Swiss National Museum in Zurich. Its exhibition shows a bold new interpretation of recent art and design history, postmodernism. Tribute will be paid to this era for the first time in Switzerland in a comprehensive presentation using international objects from the areas of architecture, design, music and graphics. Postmodernism substantially changed the familiar notions of our everyday world. Architects and designers rejected the strict concepts of the modern age and made room for a bright and multifaceted diversity. The Swiss National Museum in Zurich is delighted to present this successful exhibition from London. It will be complemented by key Swiss representatives.
