During the Bauhaus.Semester, the courses offered by the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar will be reinterpreted and complemented with additional special courses. On the one hand, these are regular courses, which are opened to students of other subjects. On the other, they are courses with different orientations conceived especially for the Bauhaus.Semester.
Among others, they include courses that

  • are run by lecturers from different faculties or disciplines and enable existing content restrictions to be overcome;
  • make methods and methodologies tangible and usable for students of different disciplines;
  • consider the idea of the historical Bauhaus;
  • allow students to address the Bauhaus and contemporary issues in their local context – the university, town of Weimar, region, and state of Thuringia;
  • enable guest lecturers to contribute perspectives from other disciplines and facilitate reflection on one’s self-image as well as the external image of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar;
  • students at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar conceive and run for themselves.

The offers invite all students to familiarise themselves with new content and methods, to discuss current social and academic issues, to engage in interdisciplinary study, and to work together. The formats conceived will include courses, projects, block seminars, workshops, and lecture series. Download the guidelines for the courses offered during the Bauhaus.Semester here.

The Bauhaus.Semester in the winter semester 2018/19 also kicks off the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus. See here for more information on other activities to mark the centenary.
