An investigation into the political and cultural influence of propaganda textiles, spanning over two centuries.

Curated by Amber Butchart, this exhibition explores printed propaganda textiles over more than two centuries. Discover how political turmoil, from the French Revolution to Brexit, influenced fabric designers' response to global events. The rise of textile mechanisation led to democratised printing techniques, allowing governments, regimes, and corporations to use fabric as a communication medium. The Fabric of Democracy shows how textiles served as a political tool at home, covering various ideologies from communism to fascism. Explore fabrics from different countries across the world, including rarely exhibited Cultural Revolution-era Chinese fabrics, shedding light on the role textiles played in shaping political global narratives.
