The British Museum looks towards our cousins in Europe for their new exhibition, German. Timed to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the reunification of Germany and also the century since the First World War, this compelling show looks to address the gaps in our knowledge about the mighty German nation. The exhibition draws on a wealth of objects from a 600 year period to explore the vast subject of German culture. The journey ranges from the height of the Holy Roman Empire and the age of Gutenberg through to post Cold War contemporary Germany, covering all the equally fascinating periods in between. The museum has secured important loans from across Germany to tell the story, including works by Great German artists, Bauhaus furniture and spectacular metal works such as clocks and armour.
