The Hanns Eisler Complete Edition (HEGA) is conceived as a historical-critical edition and aims to publish all of Eisler's preserved compositions and writings. Not only will the existing print editions be revised, but large parts of the œuvre will also be edited and made accessible for the first time.

Edited by the Internationale Hanns Eisler Gesellschaft in cooperation with the Academy of Arts, Berlin, in collaboration with Stephanie Eisler (†). The edition is published by Breitkopf & Härtel.

Until January 2019, the office of the Hanns Eisler Gesamtausgabe was located at the Peter Szondi Institute für Allgemeine und Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft at the Freie Universität Berlin. Since February 2019, it has been linked to the Archives of the Akademie der Künste, Berlin.
