With around one million objects, the Bauhaus Archive | Museum of Design is the largest Bauhaus collection in the world. But only a few objects from it have been exhibited so far. But there are a lot of digital images of the objects. In the installation Bauhaus Infinity Archive, artificial intelligence works for the audience. Each click results in a new sorting.

The audience draws lines and then finds the images in which they appear. Or it displays images with a particular color. Behind this are current research results on neuronal networks.

More than 15,000 images - most of them never before shown to the public, documents and partly internal working images - invite to be discovered. Here you can experience in an impressive way how exciting, lively, interactive and dynamic an archive can be.

Curated stories
In addition to the almost endless collection of images, the curators also present stories: 14 Years of the Bauhaus, The Bauhaus was Colorful, This Doesn't Happen Only Once, and Big and Small.
