Things to do this month


You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels, 1966-70

Victoria and Albert Museum, 10th September to 26th February

In another of its magisterial surveys of pivotal cultural moments, the Victoria and Albert Museum sets out to capture the rebellious 1960s: from fashion to photography, design, politics, high art, low art, film, literature, performance and, of course, music. It was in 1966, in Carnaby Street, this show argues, that a new youth identity was born—optimistic, creative and in revolt against its elders. This counterculture emerged in the nightclubs of Soho, on the barricades in Paris in 1968, at anti-Vietnam rallies in San Francisco, or at the music festivals of Monterey, Woodstock and Glastonbury. The exhibition also charts rising excitement about space travel, the explosion in consumerism and the emergence of idealistic communities in West Coast America. Objects will range from an Ossie Clark costume for Mick Jagger and original artworks by Richard Hamilton to a moon rock on loan from Nasa.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s September issue: Paul Johnson argues that there is no getting away from the fact our economic prospects have got worse post-Brexit. Paul Wallace attempts to outline how the government will try and deal with that situation, while Nicolas Véron suggests that The City of London will decline outside the European Union. On a brighter note, Clive James explores what we can learn from the television show Mad Men. Also in this issue: Patience Wheatcroft, the Conservative peer, suggests that Brexit might not be a done deal with a rebellion in the Lords possible. Thomas Chatterton Williams explores the work and Beyoncé and argues that black artists are failing to say anything profound and James Dyson outlines how he would rule the world.
