Moma Century of the Child

Moma has a new exhibit called Century of the Child and it’s online for those of us who can’t make it to Moma in NYC. It’s basically a history of design from 1900-2000. It’s fabulous!!!

Here is Moma’s press release description:

In 1900, Swedish design reformer and social theorist Ellen Key published Century of the Child, a manifesto for change—social, political, aesthetic, and psychological—that presented the universal rights and well-being of children as the defining mission of the century to come. Taking inspiration from Key—and looking back through the 20th century 100 years later—this exhibition examines individual and collective visions for the material world of children, from utopian dreams for the “citizens of the future” to the dark realities of political conflict and exploitation.
