In 1950s socialist Yugoslavia, Rajka and Vukašin Borojević (Ana’s grandparents) created a number of initiatives involving workers and villagers. From there endeavours, and in particular a large scale rural women textile cooperative, we look at how their work resonates today with principles of self-organisation, collectivity, radical education, emancipation or the empowerment of women, while setting out to be both entrepreneurial and economically viable.
