I Object - Ian Hislop's search for dissent at The British Museum


History, as somebody wise once said, is just one damned thing after another. But is it really? Who decides what is ‘history’? Traditionally, the answer is ‘the winners’. But in this exhibition The British Museum sets out to investigate what the other people had to say – the downtrodden, the forgotten, the protesters.
