Library

Document, inform, research

The library of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation is a public library for research into and information on the history and reception of the Bauhaus and also serves to support the general project work of the Foundation.


Research

The body of literature concerning the Bauhaus is systematically and continuously expanded. The stock is by now the largest in Europe on this subject. In addition, the project work of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation has yielded a wide range of publications on the subjects of urban development, architecture, art and design.

The library currently includes ca. 31,000 books and ca. 34 subscribed journals. Since 2012, it has been located in the remodelled concourse immediately adjacent to the Bauhaus building.
