Visiting Socialist Childhood Exhibition in Lenin Museum, Tampere, Finland
Erica Burman, Susanne Gannon, Madina Tlostanova, Iveta Silova and Nelli Piattoeva discuss the names we have selected for our workshop groups in the online Slack space. Slack has been used to discuss memories of childhood among our 94 participants before we meet in onsite memory workshops in Berlin, Helsinki, Riga and Mexico City in 2019 and in an online memory workshop in 2020. The discussion is about children story figures created in the Eastern Bloc and Soviet Union, and the ways in which, for example, Alice in Wonderland has been repurposed by children in the USSR.
