The exhibition has four themes: The first is the historical and social context of the Bauhaus, and second is the iconic but lesser-known objects and the history between them. The third area studies the theme of space and shows how many designers were involved in the design of Bauhaus, such as stage artists, architects and artists who create color theories. The fourth area of the exhibition focuses on communication, typography, experimental film and photography.
