museum of design / Berlin

The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum of Design was founded in 1960 as a private society. The aim was and is ‘to collect and present all documents relating to the activities and cultural and intellectual heritage of the Bauhaus.’ This includes photographs, books, designs, models and artistic works, as well as the organization of exhibitions and accompanying programs.

To celebrate the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, for 2019 the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung is being renovated in accordance with historic monument requirements during the next few years, with a new museum building being added.

The collection houses the works of Lyonel Feininger, Johannes Itten, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, László Moholy-Nagy, Werner Drewes, Gunta Stölzl and Oskar Schlemmer among others.
