Library at the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin, 2014


The specialist library at the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung provides literature on the Bauhaus and its milieu and the associated artists, architects and designers. In addition, twentieth-century art, architecture, photography and design – particularly from the 1920s – are comprehensively documented. It also includes extensive holdings of historical and current journals on architecture and design.

Since 1 January 2017, our reference library is closed to visitors as preparations have begun for the upcoming measures related to our building project. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, the Bauhaus-Archiv’s existing building will be modernised in a manner appropriate to its status as a listed landmark and it will be supplemented by a new museum building.


Our museum is under construction. Visit us at the temporary. Our centenary exhibition original bauhaus will be on show from 6 Sep. at the Berlinische Galerie.
