The Bauhaus Collection - Classic Modern Originals

The Bauhaus Archive/Museum of Design in Berlin is devoted to the research and presentation of the history and influence of the Bauhaus (1919-1933), the most important school of architecture, design and art in the 20th century.

The entire spectrum of the school’s activities is represented in the Bauhaus Collection: architecture, furniture, ceramics, metalwork, photography, stage pieces and student work from the preliminary course, as well as works created by the school’s famous teachers, including Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, Vasily Kandinsky, Josef Albers, Oskar Schlemmer, László Moholy-Nagy and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Even today, the ‘Bauhaus Lamp’, the ‘Vasily’ armchair and Bauhaus wallpaper designs are regarded as modern classics.

This presentation of paintings, drawings, sculptures and models by Bauhaus masters and students, comprising a selection from the world’s largest collection of Bauhaus artefacts, illustrates the lasting influence of the Bauhaus.

The annual museum programme features special exhibitions, numerous lectures, podium discussions, workshops, readings and concerts.

An audio tour is included in the price of admission. Audioguides for the permanent exhibition on the Bauhaus are available in:
