At the Bauhaus, film practice was part of the teaching concept of a "science of seeing." Art and technology were to form a new unit. Film, as a technical medium par excellence, was an important element in this program. Media art opens up an insight into the spectrum of the various artistic genres that were taught and practiced at the Bauhaus and influenced each other: in the selected works of Heinrich Brocksieper, Werner Graeff, Kurt Kranz and Kurt Schwerdtfeger painting, drawing, graphics and installation are carried through. The medium of film also made it more dynamic Inspired by the abstract films of Hans Richter and Viking Eggeling, Bauhausers further developed the modern language of forms in media art experiments.

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
