Watch our talk on the politics of passport design at the V&A museum

V&A curator Corinna Gardner spoke to designer Julian Payne and Dezeen Studio director Ben Hobson about the politics of passport design at the V&A museum in London. We streamed the talk live via our Facebook page.

The conversation took place at Don't Forget Your Passport, the latest instalment of the V&A's Friday Late programme.

Gardner is senior curator of design and digital at the V&A, while Payne is creative director of De La Rue, the world's biggest producer of passports. The pair spoke to Dezeen about the notion of the passport as a symbol of identity, and how innovations in bio-data are affecting privacy.

The talk took place at the Hochhauser Auditorium, in the V&A Sackler Centre.

The event can also be watched on Dezeen's Facebook page.

The winner of the Dezeen Brexit passport design competition is also on show at the V&A as part of the event, along more than 20 of the best entries.

The contest, which asked what the UK passport should look like after Brexit, was won by Scottish graphic designer Ian Macfarlane.
