Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as/at Ptarmigan during these years.

Symposium: Teacher
symposium : discussion
13 December, 2011 00:00 20:00

Presented by Klemen Slabina.

A short introduction to what is hoped to be a joined meditation, will raise the following questions:

If educational ministers are (too often) the ideologues of political parties they belong to, what is teacher's role in contemporary organic solidarity? Accordingly, what is teacher's professional responsibility?   Is teaching an attempt to transform hordes of generations into a relatively loyal mass? Hence, is teaching telling stories?   Context of the talk is the claim that the role of education is to be bridging between reproduction of one's ancestors' social, economic, and cultural capital and one's ability of transitivity through the social hierarchy.
