Frankfurt Collective
Curiosity is a part of us since we where little.
It’s part of our playful exploration of the world we live in.
But when we get older, curiosity turns into education.
Curiosity is left behind —
by a learning process.
How can we get back this curiosity —
and match it with a way of education.
