Radical Education discussing alternative education with Mehmet Behluli and Dren Maliqi of the School of Missing Identity and Rizoma / Prishtina, Kosovo
Radical Education (R.E.): What was the context in which the School of Missing Identity was initiated?
Mehmet Behluli (M.B.): We must look at the former Yugoslav territory in its cultural and also in its political meaning. As you know, Kosovo was very underdeveloped in that context and it was a society with a strong patriarchal way of thinking, as well as a closed one. In fact, only Kosovo was a big problem as regards integration into that Yugoslav society. Probably also because of the language, as our language is completely different from the other, Slavic, languages.
