16th October 2014 - 25th January 2015

Entry £10 (Waterstones Cardholders £7.50), members and under 16s free


A 600-year history in objects

This exhibition will examine elements of German history from the past 600 years in the context of the fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago. From the Renaissance to reunification and beyond, the show will use objects to investigate the complexities of addressing a German history which is full of both triumphs and tragedies.

Navigate through Germany's many political changes - from the Holy Roman Empire through unification in the 1870s and the troubled 20th century to today's economic powerhouse at the centre of Europe. Explore art by the likes of Albrecht Dürer, Hans Holbein, Caspar David Friedrich and Gerhard Richter, and marvel at technological achievements through the ages which gave the world Gutenberg's printing press, outstanding Meissen porcelain, the Bauhaus movement and even the modern design icon the VW Beetle.

In association with a major BBC Radio 4 series presented by British Museum Director Neil MacGregor.

Sponsored by Betsy and Jack Ryan

With support from Salomon Oppenheimer Philanthropic Foundation
