Seit Januar 2022 befindet sich die immersive Installation bauhaus infinity archive im temporary bauhaus-archiv. Using artificial intelligence (AI), more than 15,000 images, photos, documents and work sketches – most of which have never been publicly shown before – can be searched based on visual keys like a drawn line or colour. The concept behind: Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung is home to the world’s largest Bauhaus collection with around one million objects. Though only few of these objects have been exhibited so far, numerous digital images of them exist. How can we bring these unknown treasures to light? In addition to the seemingly endless collection of images, we also present stories told by our curators.
The project is developed in collaboration with ART+COM Studios and as part of “dive in. Programme for Digital Interactions” of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation) with funding by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) through the NEUSTART KULTUR programme.”
