The British Museum is to hold a major exhibition on German history at the British Museum between October 16 and January 25.
Titled Germany: Memories of a Nation, it displays a wealth of artefacts from throughout history, ranging from Tischbein's famous portrait of Goethe to a 1953 VW Beetle, and follows on from a series on BBC Radio 4.
The project is the brainchild of museum director Neil MacGregor, who told the Guardian: "The point of the series is not so much to put the history of the 20th century in a bigger context, but it's also saying, 'What has Germany done since 1990?' This is a new country, and a new country needs a new history."
