Link List #128: The Fashion Pact, The Green Gang, and sustainable Lebanese tourism
This week we’ve been reading about the fashion industry’s collective commitment to a greener future, the Indian women taking cases of marital abuse into their own hands, and renowned artist Ai Weiwei’s documentation of the Hong Kong protests.
- A coalition of 32 of the world’s largest fashion groups and brands have come together to publish a manifesto of practical objectives and targets—from a commitment to 100% renewable energy by 2030 to pledges to eliminate micro-fiber pollution—to reduce the industry’s negative impact on the climate, oceans, and biodiversity. Find out more in The Guardian.
- “Hong Kong is on fire [and] the world is indifferent to the suffering and struggling of the Hong Kong youngsters.” The Art Newspaper takes a look at how artist Ai Weiwei has been documenting the ten-week-long protests in the city.
- Artnet talks to synth-pop singer Peaches about her first solo museum show in Hamburg. Titled Whose Jizz is this?, the exhibition is a brash, provocative display of over 50 new artworks, from titillating videos and photography to animatronic sculptures and futuristic textiles.
