The cover of the clown's tear

The Borderland Foundation is happy to announce that the clown’s tear written by Krzysztof Czyżewski has just been published in the form of an art-book.

The art-book contains the etchings by Halyna Dudar and Wiesław Szumiński. Nadija Welychko worked on the design concept of the publication. The book contains seventeen translations of Krzysztof Czyżewski’s poem.

The book is the result of the cooperation of artists within the Borderland/Ukraine programme who reside and work in the International Centre for Dialogue.

A minimum prize for the book is 50 PLN. The proceeds from the sale will be devoted to the support of scholarships and residencies of the Borderland/Ukraine and for the new series of Ukrainian books, Facing the War. Everyone is welcome to give more, and thus support the writers and the initiative. For this purpose, a special bank account has been set up:
