It’s forty years since the love-it-or-hate-it, style-driven phenomenon that was postmodernism first emerged in architectural practice, soon manifesting itself in design, art, fashion and music. The V&A’s major new show, ‘Postmodernism: Style and Subversion 1970–1990′, examines its vibrant, playful forms and, sometimes contradictory, meaning. (by Simon Cowell)
