Germany: Memories of a NationA 1953 Volkswagen Beetle and a porcelain rhino are just some of the many objects from a 600 year period on display at the British Museum's Germany: Memories of a Nation, an exhibition backed by a 30-part BBC Radio 4 series marking the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall. Covering a period from the height of the Holy Roman Empire to post Cold-War Germany, the exhibition reflects the shifts of borders that define German history and gives visitors an insight into Germany beyond the First World War. The exhibition features the work of great German artists, from Riemenschneider, Durer and Holbein to Kollwitz, Barlach and Baselitz, as well as a wide range of objects that includes prints and maps, coin and medals, spectacular metalwork, Meissen porcelain, Bauhaus furniture, and a stunning copy of King Charlemagne's Holy Roman Emperor crown, commissioned by Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1913 ahead of the Great War. While visiting the exhibition leave time to see 'The other side of the medal: how Germany saw the First World War' (9th May - 23rd November 2014) a free exhibition in Room 69a of the British Museum of medals made by artists who lived and worked in Germany between 1914 and 1919.
