Book presentation "Labour, Exhaustion, and Success: Company Towns of the Donbass." Participants: Iryna Sklokina, Olena Stiazhkina, Kseniya Kuzina. During the presentation, they will discuss the issues of past and future of industrial mono-towns, particularly the approaches to their representation in media, such as in photography and art. The difference between "external" observers who would often use the perspective of "otherness" of the mono-towns and that of the residents enables taking a critical look on the established (and iconic) images of industrial mono-towns and the entire region.
