Hannah Höch purchased the property with house and coach house on Wildbahn 33 in Berlin-Heiligensee in 1939. She lived and worked there until her death in 1978. The most well-known German artist of classical modernism, she created a unique collage garden in addition to her visual work for almost 40 years. During the Second World War, the house and garden served as a hiding place and food source providing the necessities for survival. The entire grounds were provided landmark protection as an historic monument by the Berlin Landesdenkmalamt in the 1990s. In 2005, the artist Johannes Bauersachs acquired the estate with the help of family and friends with the well-accepted obligation to continue and maintain the house and garden in the memory and meaning of Hannah Höch.
