An artistic and social revolution happened in the 1960s, a backlash against the authority of mainstream 'square' culture.
Experimentation in art and poetry exploded as artists began to rip-up rule books, during this collections encounter you will see some of these cutting edge works up close.
Learn more about how Allen Ginsberg, Delia Derbyshire, Ian Hamilton Finlay and Jeff Nuttall re-invented poetry and music.
