This year, the Bauhaus Summer School is offering over 300 students from Germany and abroad places in the programme - a programme which has proved to be a success since 1983. A total of 16 language and subject-specific courses taught from 4 to 30 August invite you to discover both the city of Weimar and the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and to familiarize yourself with the ideas of Paul Klee, Johannes Itten, and other world-famous Bauhaus artists. Registration for subject-specific courses is open until 1 May 2019.
The two-to four-week courses in Architecture and Urbanism, Art and Design, Culture and Media, Engineering and Environment, as well as language classes focus on modern day challenges. »The range of courses offered incites expert discussions on central Bauhaus themes, while at the same time inspiring international and intercultural exchanges«, expresses Julia Rosenbusch, Bauhaus Summer School coordinator.
UPDATE: Application deadline expired for most of the courses - except Architectural Design, Community Engagement, Cultural Landscapes and Design Basics - until 15 May.
The course »Stretching Klee's Line: Drawing for our Digital Age«, for instance, focusses on discovering and experimenting with various drawing methods. British course instructor Alex Roberts of Great Britain bases her teaching entirely on the idea of Bauhaus, combining architecture, design, and art. In addition to traditional object studies, there are also experimental phases to find new ways of translating thought into drawing using various media and materials.
Learn Languages and Experience Weimar
The language courses are another integral part of the Bauhaus Summer School. Registration is open until 15 June 2019 for the intensive two- to four-week English or German classes. »Deutsch in Weimar«, »English Communication Skills«, and »English For Academic Purposes« are aimed at an international audience (and Germans as well, of course). Students can improve their language skills while immersing themselves in Weimar’s unique cultural flair.
The content of the German courses is centred around this year’s Bauhaus Centenary, which students will learn about through listening, reading, writing, and speaking exercises. Students will also discuss the role of women in the historical Bauhaus.
Relevant museum visits round out the language courses. Together with the Klassik Stiftung Weimar, this year’s offer includes visits to the new Bauhaus Museum, the Museum Workshop in the Neues Museum, and the castles. An excursion to Dessau is planned as well as an excursion to Berlin to offer participants the chance to visit other notable cities in Germany.
