This paper considers how the practice of design forecasting might inform and reflect museum-based collecting and curatorial strategies regarding ‘the contemporary’. The post-WW2 period saw the establishment of design forecasting as an industry, as well as a growing concern for representing ‘contemporary art and design’ in major museums across Europe and America. This paper analyses three contemporary collection strategies employed by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London between the years 1947 and 2014, in terms of their approach to communicating contemporary design trends.
