Citizens of Dot.City! Come to the Bauhaus Dessau for the 2nd trimester of the IV. Bauhaus Kolleg Dot.City starting January 23rd, 2003 April 17th, 2003. Join us to map a new grammar for the public urban in the age of ICT! Most theorists still state a crisis of public space. Most theorists still argue that ICT is a major reason for this crisis. At Dot.City, they believe there is no crisis but a lack of understanding.
The goal is to deconstruct the differentiation between public and private/physical and virtual respectively. They believe that there are overlapping calls for a new definition of urbanism as well as for new strategies to program urban processes.
The projects therefore consist of thorough research and analysis within a theoretical framework as well as of practical experiments on site in Dessau and Caracas.
To develop and to realize such projects will be the goal of the 2nd trimester. Approaches for new public urban spheres drafted during the first trimester will be reviewed and put to the practical test. The team is aiming at design strategies working directly in and with urban ICT environments. Lectures, workshops and self-contained studio work of the participants are part of the program.
Apply now to be part of this exciting venture.

Application deadline December 12th 2002. More details about the schedule available on the homepage www.Bauhaus-dessau.de/dotcity from December 10th 2002
