Cold War Modern: Design 1945-1970

Issue No. 2123

This period from the end of the Second World War to the mid-1970s was one of great political tension and exceptional creativity that touched all aspects of life. This exhibition explores the design of both sides in the Cold War between the superpowers of Russia and the US.

Art and design were not peripheral symptoms of politics during the Cold War – this exhibition shows how they played a central role in representing and sometimes challenging the dominant ideas of the age.
