Teenage Dreams

Are Teenage Dreams So Hard to Beat?


Arpita Shah, Alice Theobald, Holly White

We were all young once but how have the dreams and realities of our adolescence changed over the generations? Are Teenage Dreams So Hard to Beat?

In the age of the internet and Generation Z we will consider the contrasts of adolescence past and present as comparatively tame and nostalgic teenage magazines will be exhibited next to the never-ending click bate of internet culture.

Our teenage dreams will be suspended as the exhibition investigates our prolonged adolescence and why ‘teenage’ no longer just refers to the period between the ages of 12 and 20.

The exhibition included material from Museum of Childhood Collection, Edinburgh.
