Bauhaus phenomenon – design as a field of experiment

As the following decades have shown, its influence has gone far beyond the time limit of the first half of the 20th century and the borders of Germany.

At a distance: New Lithuania
We don't know much about Lithuania, and we often use stereotypes when thinking about it. The issue of "Herito" about Lithuania may help in overthrowing them, but it is only an introduction, a small guide to the culture and heritage of our neighbors, not exhaustive enough, but giving rise to a conversation.
