We talk with Martin Leskovjan and Juraj Bednár about the roots of Parallel Polis, a socio-political concept created by Václav Benda in connection with Charter 77. Parallel Polis was about creating parallel societies during the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic.
We also cover how it inspired and influenced the contemporary projects Paralelní Polis in Prague and Paralelna Polis in Bratislava in which Martin and Juraj are involved.
What can we learn from the Parallel Polis concept for contemporary freedom movements?
