The Victoria & Albert Museum's founding commitment to design education and industry forged an enduring connection to house and home that continues to the present day. The Museum's foundations were built on domesticity, which has played a leading role in the Museum's egalitarian vision of 'art for all'. In this lecture, V&A Director Dr Tristram Hunt will explore how the V&A's two keystones - the civic and the domestic - have shaped its ambitions and duties, and how they continue to guide the Museum's principles today.
