Cars. Exhibition in London
Since its invention and at the latest with its mass production and distribution, the car has gone on to accelerate the lifestyles of people in industrialised countries, becoming the central product of a general mobilisation. In the process, it has changed much more than just the way we travel. Independence, mobility, modernity and the expression of an urban way of life are just a few of the buzzwords. The role of the automobile in a global society is now the subject of heated debate. The car is the subject of intense criticism. It has to change, not just in terms of its climate-damaging emissions. The exhibition Cars: Accelerating the Modern World at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, on display from 24 November 2019 to 19 April 2020, aims to illustrate the changes and effects that the constant innovations in the automotive industry have had and will continue to have on our everyday lives, our lifestyles and the entire product world. The exhibition will be accompanied by a programme of talks, lectures and workshops.
