Cold War Modern
No, not the new cold war that the USA, UK and Russia seem determined to start, but a timely look at the old one. On 25 September the V&A Museum in London opens Cold War Modern: Design 1945-1970. To be honest, I don't know what to make of this show. Having lived through the cold war, I can't recall much about its designs, except for Blackhawks comics. (The Blackhawks were always duffing up nasty Commies, from slit-eyed Koreans to fur-hatted Ruskies, and shooting down MiG fighter planes.) All I can tell you is that the entrance fees are diabolical: £9 adults; £7 silver surfers (77%) and so on and so forth. No way, V&A.
