The exhibition is arranged chronologically, divided into four sections: Defining Documentary deals with the 1930s and 1940s; Looking at Britain addresses the 1950s and 1960s; Gender, Race and Society looks at the 1970s and 1980s; and Reconstructing History examines the contemporary era from 1990 to now. Thus Making History spans the greater part of the last century to the present and reveals a sustained, though complex and changing, dialogue between art and documentary in Britain that continues today.
