The recent ‘Hope to Nope’ exhibition at The Design Museum ended in controversy earlier this month when artists and designers removed their work in protest at the museum hosting a private hire event by an arms manufacturer. One of those activist groups to remove their work was the artist-run organisation Keep It Complex, who share here what they learned from the experience.
