Dear friends of the Bauhaus Kolleg,

I would like to call your attention to the next Bauhaus Kolleg, titled 
UN-Urbanism. During the academic year 2005/2006, the postgraduate program 
of the Bauhaus Dessau foundation will focus on the phenomenon of global, 
crisis-regulating urbanization. In the recent past, the role of UN troops 
in handling local, national and international conflicts has expanded 
considerably. They contribute not only to resolving conflicts, but play an 
important role in rebuilding political, social and cultural institutions. 
The spatial patterns of these global interventions will be the subject of 
investigation throughout the Kolleg year, as will the local characteristics 
that influence this processes in locations such as Kabul, Mostar or Addis 

The two-part Bauhaus Kolleg program consists of an orientation phase, which 
concentrates more on theory and analysis, and a project phase that focuses 
more strongly 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 August 31, 2005.

We would much appreciate if you passed this information on to highly 
motivated and skilled individuals who would like to work together with us 
for one year in the traditional Bauhaus building.
