Confiscation Cabinets

This is the publication for artist and teacher Guy Tarrant’s Confiscation Cabinets exhibition held in the Mueseum of Childhood. It showed artefacts confiscated in 150 different Londons schools over three decades.

The publication removes all the objects from the cabinets the artist originally contained them in. This gives the viewer the opportunity to play, swap, classify and collect the objects in their own way - triggering the nostalgia when playing card games at school of which were eventually confiscated.
