Oberih – book presentation
“Sunflower” Solidary Community Center
We are happy to announce the presentation of the book “Oberih” — the second one in Warsaw! At the event, the editors and contributors will discuss the different tools of support and the means of cultural diplomacy employed by self-organised collectives and networks since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Oberih [ukr.: ‘an item that protects’] is a publication by Kyiv-based collective understructures that serves as a fundraising project for people affected by the war in Ukraine. It is a collection of stories about things that accompany us everywhere and provide solace and protection in all circumstances. These stories were gathered from publishers' friends and colleagues in the form of short texts, images, voice messages, as well as online posts from the period of April–May 2022.
90% of the proceeds from sales are directed towards volunteer initiatives and humanitarian organizations, currently active in Ukraine.
The book was edited, designed & published by understructures: Daša Anosova, Timur Akhmetov, Vitya Glushchenko, Olha Lyubarska, Anna Riabova, Yuli Rudenko.
