One of the outstanding Japanese students at the Bauhaus was Yamawaki Iwao who, after returning to Japan in 1932, created the famous photo-collage "Der Schlag gegen das Bauhaus (The blow against the Bauhaus)."The traveling exhibition of some 2,000 objects, including Bauhaus-trained and inspired Japanese architects, organized by the Federal Government of Germany presented all disciplines taught at the Bauhaus, architecture, painting, sculpture, design, typography, theater, photography, and crafts.
