The role of the museum and its function as a public space is put into play with Arena (1997),  a semicircular modular structure made of plywood covered on both sides with Twaron (an aramid fibre, five times stronger than steel) and epoxy resin. Since its creation, it has been exhibited worldwide and is transformed with each venue it is presented. At the Bauhaus Museum Dessau it delineates a special forum in the space of the Open Stage.
