“This house should not just be a kind of shrine to one of the greatest figures that changed the way we think about our collective world and what humanity is and the problems and conflict now which are constructed. This house, this museum in its magnificently expanded form, has something to say about now…and it is the one thing which is utterly missing actually, from what passes for deep commentary about the terrible straits in which we find ourselves.”
Sir Simon Schama, CBE
