Book by Kristina Bozurska, published by PrivatePrint
15 Horror Stories by Women Workers is an art-documentary project by Kristina Bozhurska, published by PrivatePrint. The book consists of 15 testimonies of women workers accompanied by drawings made by the author. Bozurska's approach to this work is journalistic, by collecting authentic statements from the workers. Both in terms of design and content, this edition brings the aesthetics of a symbolic pamphlet that spreads the voices of these women and thus develops the opportunity for the artistic engagement to take on a new, thoughtful form and to really contribute to the problem it treats. This book, in the foreground, is conceived and realized as a fundraising project for the support of disadvantaged women workers in North Macedonia. With each purchase of the book, contribution is made to the work of the association "Glasen Tekstilec" from Stip, whose activities are aimed at improving the work conditions of workers in the textile, leather and shoe industry. The author Kristina Bozhurska, Kristina Ampeva, president of "Glasen Tekstilec" and the founders of PrivatePrint and editors of the publication, Ilija Prokopiev and Marija Hristova, will discuss about the book, the whole project, as well as the testimonies and problems they open.
