Germans in Britain: LSE Arts public exhibition
Atrium Gallery Old Building London School of Economics
Germans in Britain, a touring exhibition created by the Migration Museum Project, explores the relationship between Britain and Germany, one of the deepest between any two European countries. Although the two wars that devastated 20th century Europe cast Germany and Britain as foes, the nations have long been natural allies with intertwined interests and a shared past. German migration is a fact of British history. People, goods and ideas have moved between Britain and Germany for many thousands of years – a process stretching back to the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons and earlier.The anniversaries around the First and Second World Wars offer a good time to reflect on this long shared past. It is a story about Europe and a story about Britain. In getting to know the Germans, the British have got to know themselves.
