“A charm of margins or the anthropology of periphery”

November, 15th 17.00-20.00 Prospekt Prosvescheniya and the neighborhood

Can a city’s margin be a source of inspiration? Is it possible to do on the “periphery” attractive art projects?

These questions people discussed during their walking in the neighborhood of Prospekt Prosvescheniya. In the walking tour took part Juan López-Aranguren (Madrid), Mauro Filippi (Palermo) and Morgan Alexander Ip (Kirkenes).

After the walk in an informal atmosphere participants discussed opportunities of space’s transformation in the area of Prospekt Prosvescheniya subway station in 2016. A chef-editor of Internet platform “My district” and a district’s inhabitant Ekaterina Stekol’shikova told about an idea of transformation of this zone into a public space and about the petition made by active inhabitants.

Moderators of the walk: Arseniy Konnov and Alexandra Nenko
