Here is more information from the VA about the exhibition book:
The Disobedient Objects book was designed by Barnbrook Studio to accompany the exhibition and is edited by Catherine Flood and Gavin Grindon. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country. Focusing on social movements since 1980, the book features an introductory essay by the curators examining the history of objects in protest and activism, followed by six essays that look at particular objects, and the contexts in which they are used.
