The time has finally come! The world’s first museum for sculptural fine paper art – Haus des Papiers – will open for the first time for a ‘closed’ vernissage on 22/23 May 2021. From Friday 28 May 2021, the paper art museum will be regularly open to the public.
The Haus des Papiers is a joint project of the partners Hahnemühle, d’mage, Canon and paper positions in Berlin and shows paper art in all its creative diversity.
The museum is to become part of a large network and the European center for paper expertise, paper art and printing technologies. It is, however, already an inspiring place of unique art, with works by Rosemarie Trockel, Goekhan Erdogan, Monica Bonvicini and Leiko Ikemura.
“Ever since paper has existed, people have been fascinated and touched by this material.
Tenderness and strength at the same time. As a basis for a stroke or as a material out of itself.
From the process of creation, through artistic design, to the brutal transformation
into another aggregate state: the possibilities are endless.
No other material in art is as sensual, present, and changeable as paper.
Let’s build it a house.”
Some of the works on display have won the Paper Art Award and have been purchased by the museum’s collection. Another part are loans from artist friends and galleries.
The House of Paper is located in the Coca-Cola-Haus at Seydelstraße 30 / corner Elisabeth-Mara-Straße, 10117 Berlin-Mitte. It is open from Friday to Saturday 10:00 to 17:00, and on the last Wednesday and Thursday of every month from 13:00 to 20:00.

Hahnemühle is considered the inventor of Digital FineArt papers for inkjet printing. As a pioneer, the oldest German artist paper manufactory has been refining its real artist papers for photography and art reproductions for more than 20 years.
The papers – manufactured for more than 435 years with characteristic craftsmanship – receive a special coating, without influencing the noble haptics of the papers. This inkjet coating allows prints with pin-sharp details, in both rich colour and deep blacks. All papers have excellent aging resistance. The Hahnemühle Digital FineArt Collection offers more than 30 different papers, while the Hahnemühle Photo Range is comprised of seven media.
All papers and life science solutions have class–leading quality attributes and excellent ageing resistance. Hahnemühle has a worldwide reputation as a ‘Brand of the Century’ among photographers, artists, museums, galleries, and collectors. Products are available in more than 130 countries worldwide.
The company is headquartered in Dassel, Southern Lower Saxony, with offices in the United Kingdom, France, USA, Singapore, and China.
