The Bauhaus Archive

I had visited the Bauhaus Archive on a previous visit to Berlin but it is always very inspiring to see the innovative new ways in which the school worked and the importance they placed on crafts. They had some nice examples of textile pieces and more interestingly the designs for the textiles. The actual displays in the archive are quite small but I think that they have much more material kept in private storage and they also lend a lot of material to other museums/exhibitions. As well as the permanent collection there was a small exhibition on classic Japanese design which contained some really beautiful objects.

On the way out we picked up these interesting quotes being used as promotional literature to encourage you to become a member of the Archive:
