Experience history by sitting on recreations of historical chairs from the V&A's furniture collection. Assistant Curator Danilo Marques dos Reis will mediate an interactive session in which the audience are invited to think about the importance of engaging with museum collections and be invited to take on the role of active performers by sitting on Gitta Gschwendtner's site-specific commission Chair Bench (2012).

Please note, this tour will move to another gallery. For any access assistance, please inform a member of staff at the start of the talk.
