Image As Virus: Better Badges In The Punk Era

“Image As Virus: Better Badges In The Punk Era 1976-1983” is an exhibition devoted to punk badges/buttons. The exhibit focuses on Better Badges, a small but culturally crucial company formed by Joly MacFie (b.1950) in West London, who created the very first punk badge (pin-back button) in 1976 and went on to produce an estimated 40 million badges/buttons over the next six years.
