The Gropius Bau is closed from 24 April 2021

Unfortunately, due to the health situation and new emergency corona measures signed into effect on 22 April 2021, the Gropius Bau will be forced to close as of Saturday, 24 April 2021. Ticket-holders for the exhibition Yayoi Kusama: A Retrospective will be refunded their money automatically.

Until circumstances permit our re-opening, please explore our digital exhibition Yayoi Kusama: A Retrospective.

The Gropius Bau will re-open as soon as we are permitted and we look forward to welcoming you on-site then.

The Gropius Bau is one of Europe’s most important exhibition venues. With its acclaimed contemporary and archaeological exhibitions, the Gropius Bau has consistently opened up new realms of experience and established its international reputation. In view of its eventful history and the variety of institutions that have been active here over the years, the Gropius Bau is organised as an open framework for addressing a broad variety of artistic modes of thinking and their social implications. Through active collaboration with contemporary artists involved the programme, creative processes are revealed, new perspectives opened up and the possibilities of the institution reflected.
