About this Museum
The Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung was founded in 1960 in Darmstadt as a private society with the aim of collecting and presenting “all documents relating to the activities and cultural and intellectual heritage of the Bauhaus.” In 1979, the archive moved to a Walter Gropius-designed building in Berlin. The institution’s collection encompasses literature, photos, models, designs, architectural plans, art works, and more relating to the Bauhaus School (1919–33), one of the most influential schools of design, art, and architecture of the 20th century. It includes works by artists and designers such as Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Johannes Itten, among others. The Bauhaus Archive maintains a permanent exhibition, as well as a roster of evolving special exhibitions.
In winter 2014, the museum announced plans for expansion, which will coincide with the centennial of the Bauhaus in 2019.
