The exhibition ‘Postmodernism: Style and Subversion, 1970–1990’ was the latest in a series of exhibitions created by the V&A which tell the history of style and design in the 20th century. Previous exhibitions (each of which has been accompanied by a publication and online content) include Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Modernism, Surreal Things, and Cold War Modern.

Like its predecessors in the series Postmodernism looks principally at design – including architecture, fashion, graphics, and objects like furniture, metalwork and ceramics. It also includes some film, music and music video, and selected works of fine art.
