I Object: Ian Hislop's search for dissentJournalist, historian and Have I Got News For You regular Ian Hislop has been on a mission to find stories of dissent, subversion and satire hidden within the vast collections of the British Museum for I Object, the museum's new autumn exhibition. Exploring how people have used objects to subvert official ideology and to mock the powerful throughout history, the display highlights handpicked objects associated with dissent - like the suffragettes of the Edwardian era, and the work of outspoken Chinese artists. Often anonymously created, the pieces give a voice to those who would otherwise be without one. From a defaced Roman bust to 18th century satirical prints to modern African cloth, each object has been chosen because of the subversive or satirical message it carries. A highlight of the exhibition is an artwork by Banksy, a hoax piece called Peckham Rock which was secretly 'installed' by the artist in the museum in 2005.

 

About British Museum

If you wanted to thoroughly explore the British Museum, it would take months, if not years. Over seven millions objects from all over the world are housed in this impressive museum of human history and culture (many of the artefacts are stored underneath the museum due to lack of space).
