While our museum is being modernised and extended, we continue to welcome visitors at the temporary bauhaus-archiv. Our events programme at the temporary is centred around the Bauhaus legacy as well as current issues of design, architecture and society. Please note that the temporary is not a museum but a project space where we provide information on the new museum building and experiment with new formats of presentation and education. Original objects from our collection cannot, unfortunately, be displayed here for conservational reasons.
