[Perspectives] Interrogating the future

The best thing about The Future Starts Here, the new exhibition at London’s Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum, is that it is not afraid to be political. Actually, make that meta-political: as the press view proceeded, outside in the courtyard the V&A permitted an “unofficial fringe” event from Greenpeace protesting against the exhibition’s sponsorship by Volkswagen, itself still reeling from the 2015 scandal of falsified pollution emissions testing of its vehicles and now under fire for its adherence to diesel fuel.
