“Enchanting, philosophical, poetic: every designer should look at least once into the mirror that Tarkovsky holds up with Stalker.”

– Marina van den Bergen, editor in chief at Archined

A quest for happiness, headed by Stalker, in a high-security, mysterious place called the Zone. The confusion and fear of our time have never been better expressed than in this 1979 masterpiece by Tarkovsky. Is there any hope in the marshy, desolate landscape of the Zone? Is the journey of the Writer and the Professor to the Room where all wishes are fulfilled doomed from the outset? The Zone is the ultimate contested space where human dignity must once again be defended. Tarkovsky makes it clear that cynicism and indifference are the biggest obstacles standing in the way of a better society.
