Victoria Adukwei Bulley is the Artist in Residence for VARI’s ‘Opening the Cabinet of Curiosities Project’ and is working with Dr Hannah Young to investigate the links between British slave-ownership and the development of the V&A. Victoria will be talking to Hannah about her experience of trying to unearth the names, lives and experiences of individuals whose enslavement is ineffably tied to items held within the museum’s collections.
