Doris Lessing 100

A revealing exploration and reappraisal of the life and work of Nobel laureate Doris Lessing (1919–2013), one of the most celebrated and extraordinary writers of the twentieth century.

Visual art and objects, alongside private correspondence and working papers, explore the unfamiliar or forgotten aspects of Lessing’s life as well as iconic works that shaped her legacy. Original files from The National Archives charting MI5 and MI6 surveillance of Lessing are shown alongside objects and documents that provide a fresh context for understanding her forays into science fiction.
