V&A Launches Free Podcast Series

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) has started a new podcast series that showcases the work that goes on behind the scenes of the world's leading art and design museum.

Hosted by the V&A's Head of Research, Glenn Adamson, each podcast lasts around 20 minutes and offers an in-depth discussion with experts from both inside and outside the Museum.

Topics range from the challenges of curating exhibitions about performance, to ways of preventing art theft.

"There is tremendous interest in what goes on behind the scenes at the V&A. This new series of podcasts will provide insights about our backstage operations - from curating to conservation, education to engineering," commented Adamson.

"It's a privilege to act as the host for the series, the first of its kind in the world. By launching this series we aim to be the most transparent organisation that we can be, and to let everyone know what goes into making this the greatest museum of art and design in the world."
