Brexit design:  how will it function in and out of Europe?

Friday 3 February, 2017
1830-2030
Victoria and Albert Museum, London
Clore 55

The Brexit referendum has caused economic and cultural turmoil. What does this mean for European and British design? Is there a distinctly European design culture and, if so, what is this? How might British design and the cultural industries become realigned post-Brexit? What other international alignments are there at work for British design?
