Rapid Response Collecting, 6 November 2014

Rapid Response Collecting is a new strand to the V&A's collecting activity. Objects are collected in response to major moments in history that touch the world of design and manufacturing. The evolving display shows how design reflects and defines how we live together today, with new acquisitions raising questions about globalisation, popular culture, political and social change, demographics, technology, regulation or the law.

Kristian Volsing is Assistant Curator with the Contemporary Architecture, Design and Digital department at the V&A. Recent projects he has worked on include the Rapid Response Collecting gallery and policy, and T-Shirts 101, a display on the history of the T-shirt he curated while working in the V&A's Fashion and Textiles department. He is currently working on the forthcoming exhibition All of This Belongs to You, on the role of the museum in public life. He studied Art Gallery and Museum Studies at the University of Leeds and English and Media at Trinity and All Saints College, Leeds.

The event is programmed to coincide with Audi Fantasy, a new Pavilion commission by artist Gintaras Didziapetris.
