Material from the Victor J. Papanek archive featured in the exhibition Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia at the Berkeley Art Museum, University of California (BAMPFA) which examined the intersection of art, architecture and design in 1960s and early 1970s US counterculture.

Works featured included photographs of his radical designs, among them the Big Character Poster No.1: Work Chart for Designers (1973), the Tin Can Radio (‘Radio Receiver designed for the Third World’) (c.1971) and Artificial Burrs (1964-70).
