Two fascinating exhibitions

In Dublin,

"Women to Blame: 40 years of struggle in Ireland for abortion and contraception. A multimedia exhibition which opens Friday November 7 in Film Base in Dublin’s Temple Bar, will visually represent the events before, during and after 1983 when article 40.3.3 was inserted into the Irish Constitution via referendum."

In London,

"Disobedient Objects is an exhibition about the art and design produced by grassroots social movements. It will show exhibits loaned from activist groups from all over the world, bringing together for the first time many objects rarely before seen in a museum." There are downloadable PDF guides for making some fascinating activist tools on the V&A's site(!)
