ANTHROPOLOGY FOR KIDS (A4K) is an open learning platform providing alternative education contents in which participants work with "cursed questions" as Fedor Dostoevsky called them. These are questions about issues that are important for all cultures and historical times, questions that unite us and on which each one of us find his or her answers: What is justice, labor, technology, wealth, climate change or the future school?
A4Kids, under the artistic direction of Nika Dubrovsky, is designed to encourage exchange processes describing essential aspects of human life in simple terms within an international network of laboratories and cooperation partners.
A4Kids involves experienced experts such as scientists, artists, curators and other practitioners making their knowledge accessible to all people – children, their families and anybody else – from all backgrounds and regions.
