Homelessness belongs in a museum

Issue 1617

Homelessness belongs in a museum

It’s taken the Museum of Homelessness 10 years to find a home. As they settle in to their new North London base, co-founders Jess and Matt Turtle tell Big Issue how the move indoors brings art, activism and the chance to do museums better all under one roof. And it’s probably the world’s first museum to have a black bin bag as a headline exhibit too. Join us as we take you inside the most important museum collection in the UK.

Also inside
