German Memories of a Nation
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 Dürer, Holbein and Richter, and marvel at technological achievements through the ages which gave the world Gutenberg’s printing press, Meissen porcelain, the Bauhaus movement and modern design icon the VW Beetle.
