Since 30 June 2018, the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung in the temporary bauhaus-archiv / museum für gestaltung will present itself in the historical Haus Hardenberg at Knesebeckstraße 1 - 2 in Berlin-Charlottenburg. The head office in Klingelhöferstraße is currently being renovated and expanded for the next four years.
During the construction phase, the temporary bauhaus sees itself as a project space and showcase, a place of information and a contact point for the Bauhaus anniversary in 2019. The Bauhaus-Archiv wants to enter into dialogue with visitors trough unusual exhibition formats and events. The project space functions also as place of information about the activities in the 100th anniversary year of Bauhaus in 2019. On display are reproduced archive documents, photographs and drawings that trace the founding phase of the Bauhaus Archive in Darmstadt and later in Berlin. The bauhaus shop offers its familiar range of Bauhaus design products at the same location.
the temporary bauhaus-archiv / museum für gestaltung is located in the listed Haus Hardenberg, which was built in 1955 / 1956 by the architect Paul Schwebes and is considered one of the most important office and commercial buildings in post-war West Berlin.
The new project room moves to the ground floor of the area last used by the Lehmanns bookshop and is the new neighbour of the Manufactum department store. The rooms were renovated by Staab Architects and furnished by gewerk. The programme of events with cooperations and workshops will start on the Long Night of Museums on 25 August 2018.
