Artwork by Boa Mistura

During the grey winter months (and beyond), the construction fence around the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung on Klingelhöferstraße is standing out with a colourful artwork by the Spanish collective Boa Mistura. Walter Gropius' claim "Dem Menschen von heute die Wohnung von heute!" ("The modern apartment for the modern man") in an essay from 1930 is at the centre of the 240-metre-long urban artwork. It is the first of a total of three works of art that Boa Mistura will create until our museum reopens. Our trailer shows how the first piece came about.

In view of current developments in relation to coronavirus, the temporary bauhaus-archiv is closed until further notice.
