The special library of the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung contains literature on the Bauhaus and related subjects, including the artists, architects and designers who were associated with the school. The library features a broad range of literature on art, architecture, photography and design of the 20th century and an extensive collection of current architecture and design periodicals. The holdings include a number of rarities as well, e.g. publications produced by the Bauhaus, such as the Bauhaus Books, historical Bauhaus journals and product catalogues. Library users can search the holdings of the library via the electronic catalogue of the Berlin-Brandenburg Library Association KOBV. The collection of rarities is listed in the Bauhaus-Archiv collection catalogue.

We regret that the library will remain closed to users in the coming years until the renovation and expansion of the Bauhaus-Archiv is completed.
