Archive of the Collection – The world's second largest Bauhaus collection

Einblicke in die Arbeit der Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau, Bereich Sammlung, Herr Thöner und Herr Schöbe / Sebastian Gündel, 2011, Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau

The archive with the depot includes the legacies and collections of 168 Bauhaus teachers and students, preserving sources of mainly private or institutional origin and providing a wealth of information on the Bauhaus lines of development and the stages of its history. They include some 40,000 originals, thematic documents, eyewitness reports, findings from building research and the renovation of Bauhaus buildings and other examples of modern architecture.

The extensive historical collections include the legacies of Franz Ehrlich, Carl Fieger, Reinhold Rossig, Friedrich and Alma Else Engemann, and Konrad Püschel, partial legacies of Hannes Meyer and Lena Meyer-Bergner, a bundle of papers on Marianne Brandt and the group of works from the Bröhan Collection.


From January 2016 we are starting with our preparations for the Bauhaus Museum Dessau (opening scheduled for 2019). This includes a wide range of scientific and research tasks in our collection. Unfortunately, due to this preparations we are closing our Archives from January 2016 until the opening of the new Bauhaus Museum in 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Of course for any questions we are still available.
