Germans in Britain
A new exhibition by the Migration Museum Project
‘There’s more to Anglo-German relations than war and football’ (Joanna Lumley)
To mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the first world war, The Migration Museum Project has created a new exhibition that explores the rich and fascinating history of German migrants to Britain.
1 November 2014 to 30 January 2015
Remembering East Germany’s Peaceful Revolution.
Twenty-Five Years Later
The exhibition marks the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Berlin Wall, and is based on Molly Andrews` longitudinal research project (1992-2012) “The Unbuilidng of East Germany: Excavating Biography and History”. In the project, political psychologist Molly Andrews with the assistance of Birgit Schmitt interviewed in 1992 and again in 2012 fifteen people who played a prominent role in the changes of 1989. The exhibition combines reflections from these artists, actors, religious leaders, scientists, and politicians with archival materials from the Robert Havemann Gesellschaft, the leading archive of East Germany’s dissident movement, shedding light on the experience of living through revolutionary change.
