Photo Service

The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung is happy to make its extensive photo archive available for publications and for research purposes. The Photo Service can supply hi-res scans and fine art prints in various formats and for different types of usage. More information is available in our Terms and Conditions of Use.

A part of our collection can be searched online via our online database (in the section "Bereich", select "Fotografie"). This helps us process your requests more quickly.

Please fill in the Photo Order Form and send it back to us by e-mail together with the signed Terms and Conditions of Use and as much details as possible of the images you're looking for (artist, title, theme, screenshot). Adobe Acrobat Reader to fill in the PDF document and save any changes can be downloaded here for free.

Hi-res scans cost 10 € per scan and are printable up to A3 at 300 dpi. Usage fees for these hi-res files also apply, depending on the type of publication. We are happy to send you a copy of the relevant price lists by e-mail upon request.

The Bauhaus-Archiv holds the rights to the digital files which differs from copyright which protects original works of art. Before any publication of the digital images provided by us, users must clear copyrights themselves and pay any required fees. The Photo Service will inform you how to clear this additional permission and can assist you in establishing contact with the copyright holders.

Many artists and photographers whose work we hold are represented by the royalties collection society VG Bild-Kunst.

Due to an increased amount of inquiries, it might take longer to process your request. The photo service will get back to you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
