Curated by Alec Newson to shed light on the transformations of the “third industrial revolution”, the new Design Museum’s exhibition is about the winners, not the losers, of today’s technologies.
A pink neon sign welcomes visitors to the Design Museum’s latest exhibition. It is a brazen statement: “the future is here”.
Moments later it flickers, and switches to something less bullish: “the future was here”. This combination of bravado and uncertainty sums up “The Future is Here: A New Industrial Revolution”. Curated by Alec Newson, this is a show that aims to shed light on the transformations currently taking place in the “third industrial revolution”.
