Dr Dan Davis and the team at LINKAGE have worked with Liminal Space to create a free exhibition 'Unclaimed', now on at the Barbican.
Unclaimed takes inspiration from lost property offices and you will be able to pick up items to discover the surprising, illuminating or ‘unclaimed’ stories that emerged.
