Christiane Wachsmann

Curator in the HfG archive, responsible for exhibitions and the supervision of the collection.

After an apprenticeship as a carpenter, Christiane Wachsmann studied Architecture and Design at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Stuttgart (1981-86), then editorial traineeship at the Stuttgarter Nachrichten (1987-89), setting up and managing the HfG archive in Ulm (1989-1997). During this time she produced numerous catalogues on the subject of HfG, including on Hans Gugelot as a teacher, Walter Zeischegg, the beginnings of the HfG in Ulm and the teaching of former Bauhäusler in Ulm. After a family pause from 2008-17, Christiane Wachsmann was responsible for inventory and digilisation. Since 2018 she has been curator and deputy director of the HfG archive.

In June 2018 her book “Vom Bauhaus beflügelt — Menschen und Ideen an der Hochschule für Gestaltung Ulm” was published by av-edition, Stuttgart.
