Final weeks “Open House” 

Before we close our building’s doors on 30 April 2018 for its expansion and modernisation, we cordially invite you to join us in our final weeks from 21 March to 29 April at the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung! In the Bauhaus-Archiv’s empty exhibition galleries freed from all subsequently added architectural elements, you can experience the light-filled original state of this building designed by Walter Gropius and opened in 1979. Through a sound installation by the artists Bill Dietz and Janina Janke, visitors can performatively explore fundamental key texts and social issues examined by Bauhaus architects while contributing to the polyphony of the artwork which can be heard in the exhibition galleries as well as outside the building. Ideas of the historical Bauhaus thus become a source of inspiration for the present. A film as well as an audio guide featuring interviews with people who work at the Bauhaus-Archiv provide information about the approaching move and the institution’s prospects for the future. At the same time, members of the Bauhaus Agents programme will use a learning space developed by schoolchildren in cooperation with the artists collective Construct Lab to provide insights into their work. Daily architectural tours round off the programme and are free of charge. With a richly diverse programme of events on 29 April, we will finally say “au revoir” – until we meet again at our temporary venue in the Hardenberg House and in our new building! We will soon provide you with more information and a detailed programme here.
