The Kunstmuseum Stuttgart has housed the Baumeister Archive since January 2005. It contains the estate of artist Willi Baumeister (1889-1955). The archive was compiled by his widow and daughters and is now accessible for the purposes of academic research. Several art historians were involved in producing the different catalogues dedicated to paintings, drawings, gouaches, collages and prints. The archive advises on content and loans works to both comprehensive retrospective exhibitions and smaller themed presentations. The archive is administrated by Hadwig Goez. Felicitas Baumeister - as daughter of the artist especially familiar with the estate contents - fulfills a consulting role with her knowledge of and about the works and continues to produce specialist reports with the co-operation of the catalogue authors.
