As part of the FDC collection housed in the RMIT Design Archives, the FDC scrapbooks collate the press – the good and the bad – on their activities and performances. Amassing an archive of clippings, the FCD created a series of scrapbooks that date back from the early 1980s and include Henry Maas’s article from Weekender (29 March, 1985) mischievously entitled, ‘Living Proof that Today’s Look Will Stock the Op-shops of Tomorrow’.

Join Professor Robyn Healy to flip through the pages of these scrapbooks and reflect on the FDC’s reception by the culture of Melbourne, and Australia, at the time.
