Collecting Europe Artist Commissions: The Return of Tipu’s Tiger 

Victoria and Albert Museum, London (Lunchroom, Learning Centre) 

Performances: 1 February, 4pm & 3 February, 7:30pm


Raqs Media Collective are participating in Collecting Europe Artist Commissions at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Their project, entitled ‘The Return of Tipu’s Tiger’, takes one of the V&A’s most popular objects and considers how visitors might react to it in the future. An 18th-century automaton from South India, Tipu’s Tiger reminds us of the ongoing battle between defeat and victory, man and nature, history and mystery.
