Panopticon: Experimental Tales of Jeremy Bentham


North Lodge | UCL Main Campus (link Map)
Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Alumni | Public | Academic | Student
Ticketing: Open

Open Monday to Saturday 1-5pm.

This collaborative exhibition explores the life, influence and radical ideas of Jeremy Bentham. A display of facsimile manuscripts from UCL Special Collections is enhanced by projected images and text, weaving a different tale for each visitor. The 'flexible' display methods will help us understand how designers and curators can use digital technology to explore multiple narratives from one set of artefacts.

This exhibition showcases two UCL-based research initiatives: Design with Heritage (in collaboration with the Victoria & Albert Museum) and Transcribe Bentham.
