Hinnerk and Lou Scheper

The artists Hinnerk and Lou Scheper had a decisive impact on the Bauhaus. They additionally played a key part in the development of heritage conservation and art in post-war Berlin. The couple’s unique estate includes colour designs, drawings, prints, photographs, furniture, design objects, documents and correspondence as well as an extensive library featuring rare exhibition catalogues, brochures and journals of the 1920s.

Big changes are coming!

Since 30 April 2018 the museum is unfortunately closed, so that construction work on the renovation and expansion can begin.
The bauhaus-shop and cafe will remain open in May. Opening Times bauhaus-shop: daily, except on Tuesdays, 10 am - 5 pm, Café: Mon-Fri, 10 am - 5 pm.

In the summer of 2018 the Bauhaus-Archiv will open a new project space in the rooms formerly occupied by the Kiepert bookshop in the Hardenberg House located at the corner of Knesebeckstraße and Hardenbergstraße. There we will inform you about all of our institution’s projects and continue to maintain contact with our visitors while the construction work is carried out. The bauhaus-shop also looks forward to greeting you there in future.
