Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Don't miss this small-but-very-neatly-formed free display of artworks by Käthe Kollowitz. The exhibition, which comes to the British Museum after a short UK tour, concentrates on her intense self-portraits and unnerving pictures of working, and often impoverished, women. The artist is best known for her two series Ein Weberaufstand (A Weavers’ Revolt, completed in 1897) and Bauernkrieg (Peasants’ War completed in 1908).
