Link List #131: Stolen toilets, inclusive party nights, and a forest in a football stadium
This week we’ve been reading about the 18 karat gold toilet which was stolen from Blenheim Palace, the Ibiza club night aiming to counteract the island’s straight club scene, and the art installation in a football stadium provoking discussions about deforestation.
- Inspired by Max Peintner—the artist who imagined a future where trees would only exist like animals in zoos—Swiss curator Klaus Littmann has planted 300 trees in an Austrian football stadium. Titled For Forest, the large-scale ode to the environment has been sparking conversations around climate change and deforestation. Find out more on Dezeen.
- The Guardian talks to Glitterbox, the ultra inclusive disco-house party night filled with glitter, bare buttocks, and trans go-go dancers in an effort to combat Ibiza’s overwhelmingly straight club scene.
- From sleeping seals to zombie beetles and a tragic turtles, The Natural History Museum in London gives us a sneak peek at some of the images by entrants into this year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.
- BBC News talks to the vintage dealer fighting fast fashion by buying up unloved cast-offs from Togo markets and reselling them in his Paris-based concept store.
- An 18-karat gold toilet created by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan was stolen last week from an exhibition at Oxford’s Blenheim Palace. As fears that the artwork has been melted down grow, Cattelan insists that the robbery is not a Banksy-style prank. Find out more on Wallpaper.
