I would like to call your attention to the next Bauhaus Kolleg,  
titled EU-Urbanism. 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/Görlitz 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  

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.
