Strelka Press. Day Four

Part of: The Future of Books. The Future of Education. The Future of the City.

Central House of Artists

Strelka Institute is launching Strelka Press and presenting its first e-books at the Open Moscow Book Festival.

Strelka Press offers a totally new content and form for conversations about architecture, design and urban development. The publishing house seeks new ways to think about the city and invites readers to participate in this experiment. To this end, Strelka Press has developed a new book format – a compact e-book that you can access any time, anywhere.

What lies at the core of a city that is rich and comfortable for its residents and visitors is not only a variety of functions, but also a variety of meanings, and a low level of this kind of variety presents an insurmountable obstacle for urban development. How do we view the city? As pedestrians or as drivers? As Muscovites or visitors? To what extent is our perception of Moscow predetermined by our professions, education, interests and the habitual travel routes we follow? In Strelka Institute’s culminating programme at the Open Moscow Book Festival, we’ll have a series of “kitchen table” conversations about Moscow – we’ll try to get a handle on how Muscovites, Petersburgers, designers and poets perceive it.

12 pm. Conversations about Moscow: Muscovites.  Discussion with Evgeny Pischikov, Alena Solntseva, Aleksei Levinson and Alexander Mozhaev.

2 pm. Conversations about Moscow: Citizens. Tutorial at Prospect Sakharova.

4 pm. Conversations about Moscow: Designers. Discussion with Elizaveta Oreshkina, Igor Ganzhi, Anatoly Gusev and Mikhail Smetana.

6 pm. Conversations about Moscow: Poets. Discussion and Evening of Poetry with Maria Stepanova, Mikhail Aizenberg, Viktor Koval, Fyodor Svarovsky and Stanislav Lvovsky.
