The Space theme is connected with the delimitation of the territories and incorporation of the Czech Lands, Czechoslovakia, and the Czech Republic within the central European and international structures. Space also includes sectioning of the landscape into smaller units where transformations provoked by various causes took place in the development of the society.
The Time theme mostly covers military and political history. Apart from the historical developments taking place on large European and non-European territories, it also includes events concentrated to a few repetitive locations or rapid transformations in the society over short periods of time.
The Society theme reflects on the still hot issue of migrations, both as a historical process and as a demonstration of violence of the ruling powers and regimes. It pays attention to the ethnic, religious, and educational diversities and monitors the perception of the Czech State in the world through various forms of representations as a whole or as regards the individual persons.
