Anthropology for Kids
A project by Nika Dubrovsky
Edited and proof read by Barbara Andersen Designed by Torsten Lesszinsky, Elena Shindukova and Mitya Kobrinsky
Anthropology For Kids describes essential aspects of human life in simple terms. The project uses examples from a wide spectrum of different cultures, it researches the existential and universal question of what it means to be human – as a child and as an adult – in order to explore the diversity of how people live globally and throughout history. In a language that is understandable and eligible for everyone it subverts the habitual perception of our lives towards a reconsideration of our social beliefs and habits.
Produced for the exhibition Everything we see could also be otherwise (My sweet little lamb) 2017
