DIY activist-arts broadsheet GOOD TROUBLE returns with its third issue, with a massive 44 pages of art, protest and creativity, plus a big poster.
Basically three magazines in one! Good Trouble, More Trouble & The Waste Land
With a special focus on the climate crisis, a dedicated section includes the likes of Olafur Eliasson, Extinction Rebellion and Bill McKibben (founder of 350.org), as well as the new wave of youth climate activists, Jakob Kudsk Steensen’s augmented-reality art, indigenous leaders, and large-scale photographs of humanity’s effects on the planet by Edward Burtynsky.
The cover is a previously unpublished image from Olafur Eliasson’s Glacier Series (1999/2019), showing the remains of Okjökull, the first Icelandic glacier to disappear and lose its status because of global warming.
The issue also features radical thinker Douglas Rushkoff, feminist artist Penny Slinger, veteran AIDS awareness activist Avram Finkelstein (ACT-UP, Gran Fury), Jex Blackmore’s Sex Militant project, civil rights photographer Steve Schapiro, authors Tim Maughan and Nathalie Olah, artist Ekene Ijeoma, and radical poet Sean Bonney (RIP).
There’s also artwork by David Shrigley, Heather Philipson, Joan Jonas, SKREI and Sebastian Mejia, as well as a double-sided pull-out with Scott King’s ‘Balloon for Britain’ and an exclusive poster for Gareth Pugh’s ‘Soul of a Movement’ documentary. Plus radical K-Pop, antifascist black metal, Spiral Tribe, and all the usual Good Trouble nonsense like a curious recipe for leftover terrine.
Since November 2016, Good Trouble has published stories from the intersection of arts and culture with politics and protest. In August 2017, Good Trouble launched a limited-edition print publication: Issue 23, an ‘epic 12-page broadsheet of art, protest, creativity and resistance’, designed by Richard Turley. Issue 22 followed in 2018, expanding to 32 pages, and was awarded Magazine of the Year at the UK’s 2018 Stack Awards. Issue 21 is its third issue. No, it doesn’t really make sense.
All proceeds of this issue to Extinction Rebellion
