Weekly update: Neil MacGregor lectures on Charlemagne

Updated: Mar 29, 2020

By Alex Stuart

Author Neil MacGregor gave a lecture at Oxford University about Charlemagne, the ‘father of Europe’. He also commented on the recent controversy surrounding the Humboldt Forum. Read our take here.

A new exhibition on Charlotte Salomon, a German artist who died in Auschwitz in 1943, opened at the Jewish Museum in London. Her autobiographical graphic novel: ‘Life? Or Theatre?’ is the centre-piece; critic Jonathan Jones’ 5* review (“it’s like a storyboard for a Wes Anderson film”) gives rich context to her work and its expressionist influences. Stay tuned for our own review of the exhibition on's website.
