DISPLAY: This display offers alternative ways of understanding the 'art of remembering', explored by Hari Kunzru in his narrative for Sky Arts Ignition: Memory Palace.

It features historical mnemonic approaches to developing memory skills: from classical texts (printed in the European Renaissance) to Victorian manuals and card games, and also presents contemporary visual interpretations of home – an emotionally resonant space where you may mentally store what you want to recall.

Displays complement our permanent collections, there are many free temporary displays around the V&A. They range in size from a single case to a room.
