Event Details

What do a jam pot, a fountain pen, a house number plate and a teddy bear have in common? All of these things have been brought to Britain by German immigrants and expats. And all of them will be on show this autumn at "Things we keep: Curators of our own history", an exhibition at the German Historical Institute London.

Curated by researchers from King’s College London and the German Historical Institute and designed by artist Rolf Sachs, the project explores the narratives behind the things we keep and why we keep them.

The exhibition opens on 9 September 2015 with a lecture by Inge Weber-Newth (London Metropolitan University) on "Home ties: Objects in migrants' lives".
