bauhaus infinity archive

The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung is home to the world’s largest Bauhaus collection with around one million objects. Though only few of these objects have been exhibited so far, numerous digital images of them exist. How can we bring these unknown treasures to light? The Bauhaus Infinity Archive installation takes advantage of the power of artificial intelligence (AI). Each click on the touch pad leads to new search results: You draw lines and the AI finds images in which they appear. Or you can search for images which contain a certain colour. The underlying concept is driven by cutting-edge research on neuronal networks. We invite you to discover more than 15,000 images – photos, documents and work sketches – most of which have never been publicly shown before. Experience in an impressive way how exciting, interactive and dynamic an archive can be!

Curated stories
In addition to the seemingly endless collection of images, we also present stories told by our curators: 14 Years of the Bauhaus, The Bauhaus was Colourful, This Doesn’t Only Happen Once, Big and Small, Bauhaus Berlin, Collection, Automobiles and Bicycles.

The project is developed in collaboration with ART+COM Studios and as part of "dive in. Programme for Digital Interactions" of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation) with funding by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) through the NEUSTART KULTUR programme.”
