Germany divided - Baselitz and his generation Featuring over 90 works by some of the leading names in contemporary art, this exhibition of post-1945 prints and drawings explores how six key artists redefined art in Germany in the 1960s and 1970s and negotiated with the past, on both sides of the Berlin Wall. Half of the works on display are by Georg Baselitz (b 1938), and 34 of the works in the exhibition, including 17 by Baselitz, have been generously donated to the British Museum by Count Christian Duerckheim. The exhibition is free and takes place in Room 90 of the British Museum.

About British Museum

If you wanted to thoroughly explore the British Museum, it would take months, if not years. Over seven millions objects from all over the world are housed in this impressive museum of human history and culture (many of the artefacts are stored underneath the museum due to lack of space).
