Hand Me Over Hand Me Downs

Annabel Stockman's new exhibition in the V & A Museum of Childhood begins on Saturday 24th March.

The display examines the UK's adoption policy through a series of images of the clothes, keepsakes, and lucky charms which Chinese children brought with them when they left their native country.

The images are exhibited alongside items and stories from adoptive parents, aiming to capture the moment a child joins their new family and all the emotions which accompany it.

In this week's edition, there will be two sessions. The first will feature a talk from Mona Saudi, head of the PLO's Plastic Art Section in the 1970s, who curated some of the first international exhibitions of visual art from the revolution.

The second will focus on screenings of Our Small Houses by Kasseem Hawal (1974), and Palestine Another Vietnam by Jorge Denti and Jorge Giannoni (1971), with talks from the directors afterwards.
