During the academic year 2006/2007, the postgraduate program of the Bauhaus Dessau will examine the effects of the expansion of the European Union on cities and urban culture in Eastern Europe. The creation of a unified European space takes place over a long-term process of adjustment to legal, institutional and economic regulations. Using the example of selected places such as Sibiu/Hermannstadt and Zgorgelec/Grlitz in the new Europe, the extent to which these cities are testing grounds for the diversification of the model of the “European city” is to be investigated.
The two-part Bauhaus Kolleg program consists of an orientation phase, which concentrates more on theory and analysis, and a project phase that focuses stronger on developing working methods and strategies. An exhibition and the production of a book are scheduled to conclude the Kolleg year.
The Bauhaus Kolleg is now accepting applications for the upcoming program. Graduates with a strong academic background in the fields of art, architecture, urban planning, cultural theory, design, media studies, philosophy and other related disciplines are invited to apply. The application deadline is July 31, 2006.
