«The wall and the weaponised border function in a vaster ecology. That larger ecology helps explain the failures of government attempts to stop unauthorised migration via border controls. It might be argued that the Berlin wall «worked» on its own terms. True enough, but those
terms were far too narrow to keep a larger ecology from making it unworkable in the long term. It was not US tanks that brought the wall down. It was that larger ecology». (via Opendemocracy.net)

Today, Strelka is delighted to welcome the new students about to take part in its educational programme, and wishes them all a fascinating year, full of experimentation and discovery.

This year’s nine-month study programme will include an introductory course, a competition on urban space development, a research studio, and an outdoor exhibition project. In the course of their studies, participants will not only gain the knowledge and skills needed to work with the urban environment, but will also have the chance to improve their group working skills, explore the psychology of the work process, and find out about the principles of interdisciplinary cooperation.
