I object: Ian Hislop's search for dissent

History, as somebody wise once said, is just one damned thing after another. But is it really? Who decides what is ‘history’?

In this exhibition we’re setting out to investigate what the other people had to say. With Private Eye Editor Ian Hislop, you have to rummage around in the stores. On his search, he’s hand-picked a range of intriguing objects that explore the idea of dissent, subversion and satire.
