Modernism & Postmodernism Primary Research

On Wednesday I went to the V&A and the British Museum to do some primary research for our CCS project. Looking through to find and choose an object to write about, between 1918 – 1985 and fits into either Modernism or Postmodernism. Making my way to the 20th Century wing of the V&A and Europe from 1900 in the British Museum.

I was pleased to find some pieces by Le Corbusier and Marcel Breuer, as well as Ingo Maurer. Le Corbusier’s Chaise Longue was of particular interest after just having read ‘Le Corbusier, Orientalism, Colonialism’ by Zeynep Celik.
