Since early 2017, Hana Miletić has been working with a group of women at Globe Aroma. They met on a regular basis for a series of text and textile workshops that they designed together. Later, they shared their experiences during workshops that crossed generations. They also broadened each other’s mindsets and enriched one another’s testimonies.

On one hand, text became a substance during these workshops. In fact, that matter was put together by many hands, lapping and unravelling with tenderness and care. On the other hand, working with textiles gave the group time to think carefully. In addition, they reflected on its metaphorical significance in society.

Txt, Is Not Written Plain (draft I) became an installation of felt cloths and poetic texts. The group produced each time at one and the same table, as a group. The correlating cloths and poems give expressions to their engagement on behalf of social fabrics in the form of responsibility and affection.
