Contemporary design culture is finding increased, dedicated space in museums. But as immaterial practices and outcomes take up more prominence in design, how do these museums respond? How do we exhibit and collect digital artefacts, systems, services or, even, design thinking? And what roles should the design museum undertake initially?
Venue: Seminar Room One, Sackler Centre, Victoria & Albert Museum, South Kensington

The Design Culture Salon series features occasional discussion events at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. It provides a space to discuss specific issues of contemporary design in society and develop new ideas.
Each event features an invited panel, chaired by Guy Julier, University of Brighton Professor of Design Culture at the V&A. Panelists provide brief, personal overviews of the respective event’s theme. This is followed by open discussion.
These salons are supported by the University of Brighton and the Learning Department and Research Department of the V&A.
