    Herald: Welcome to this lecture from,
    I have to look up here, but it's Nika, I know.
  • Not Synced
    Nika, I hope I pronounce your name right,
    it's Dubrovsky. Nika Dubrovsky was born
  • Not Synced
    in the U.S.S.R. I think it was U.S.S.R. at the time?
    Yes, still. So not the Soviet Union but the U.S.S.R.
  • Not Synced
    And she moved over to New York, I understood?
    And then, last six years living in Berlin.
  • Not Synced
    She's an artist.
    And luckily, artists make our life better,
  • Not Synced
    and try to give certain color and feeling
    to this world.
  • Not Synced
    Next to being an artist, she's engaged in
    projects like this one: "Anthropology for Kids".
  • Not Synced
    And there is a project here that's going
    to be related in an open-source book
  • Not Synced
    called "What is Privacy?".
    I'm gonna give you the stage, I think.
  • Not Synced
    Right?

    Nika Dubrovsky: So, I'm working on this
    project for a couple years already.
  • Not Synced
    And I'm very happy to be here. I'm not
    an experienced speaker. So, I'm nervous.
  • Not Synced
    I'm going to describe this project,
    and hopefully get some advice or
  • Not Synced
    maybe find collaborators.
    So, I started to work on this because
  • Not Synced
    I bought a book about pilots to
    my six-years old son who was
  • Not Synced
    learning to read. And I was hoping
    it would be a dramatic book about
  • Not Synced
    ??? communities
    and all kinds of images and events
  • Not Synced
    But it was quite the opposite.
    It was a very closed product. Sugary, and
  • Not Synced
    kitchy, and completely, like, nothing true.
    So, I was thinking: "OK, actually, it's really
  • Not Synced
    great to do books for kids, but books
    that will talk about what Dostoyevsky
  • Not Synced
    called '??? questions', something that
    every human being has to decide
  • Not Synced
    for themselves - what is family, what
    is death, what is money, for example,
  • Not Synced
    and what is privacy as well.
    And then I started to do these books.
  • Not Synced
    I understand them as hacking the social
    codes because, when we get our education,
  • Not Synced
    and when I saw my son getting his
    education, we're presented again
  • Not Synced
    these closed products that we have
    to rehearse and repeat.
  • Not Synced
    And it's very rarely
    that the kids, and adults as well,
  • Not Synced
    are allowed to really take apart
    the major important social ideas
  • Not Synced
    and then reconstruct them for themselves.
    And I want to say that one of the
  • Not Synced
    important influences for me
    was Soviet children literature in
  • Not Synced
    the 1920's that was very important also
    for the beginning of construction of
  • Not Synced
    the revolutionary identity of the Soviet
    people. Because that identity of
  • Not Synced
    the Soviet people didn't exist. So before
    1937, Stalin's crackdown, Soviet children's
  • Not Synced
    literature was really, really progressive,
    and there was a lot of qualities that,
  • Not Synced
    I think, are very important now. So the
    "Anthropology for Kids" is supposed to be
  • Not Synced
    a web project. With really downloading
    books. That's also a (?) wiki-edu (?),
  • Not Synced
    "Wiki Kids". This is a Ludo books (?)
