[ Announcements ]

The current program of the Bauhaus Kolleg Dessau ("UN Urbanism") deals with the transformation of cities located in crisis regions, with Mostar and Kabul as imminent case studies, and is aimed at investigating the phenomenon of global crisis-preventing and crisis-regulating urbanization. Guided by a set of research questions - What patterns and normative ideas about the city, civil society and the public sphere emerge as a result of these interventions? How can city planning - with the support of international humanitarian organizations - communicate the torn realities of individual cities? What ideas do these organizations have about city planning? - the participants' findings will be published and presented in an exhibition. More information on concept and projects is (or will be made available) at
