Discover the lasting impact of the late 1960s counterculture with You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-70 exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Following the austerity of the post-war years, a new subversive movement emerged between 1966 and 1970 across the UK, Europe and the USA. From the environment to civil rights, computing to consumerism, these revolutionary years made significant changes to established Western structures and attitudes, which can still be felt to this day.

Relive this important era through photography, posters, music, film, fashion, literature, performance and objects in The V&A’s immersive exhibition, and draw connections with the way we live today.

Highlights include a moon rock and the space suit worn by William Anders, an Apple 1 computer, notes from the 1968 Paris student riots, imagery from the Montreal and Osaka World Fairs, and shards from Jimi Hendrix’s guitar.
