Good Trouble magazine The culture of resistance. www.goodtroublemag.com

GOOD TROUBLE celebrates the culture of resistance, publishing stories from the intersection of arts and culture with politics and protest. GOOD TROUBLE is a digital publication about the movements standing up and fighting for a better world. It looks through the lens of arts and culture at the stories of individuals and groups around the world pushing for equality, liberty, justice and climate sustainability. It celebrates resistance with all its beauty, humour and contradictions, because life is messy and serious business can be fun. GOOD TROUBLE is a cultural hub sharing interviews, stories, photos, features, art, documentaries, music and DIY projects – original, commissioned, edited and open to submissions. The site will also connect people to resources, communities, further information and established campaigning organisations. GOOD TROUBLE is about exploring, connecting, and using the power of stories to help build networks and amplify voices. It will be a process of discovery, experimentation, learning and probably a few mistakes along the way. If recent years have been defined by clickbait, echo chambers, propaganda and the collapse of meaning, then maybe the future needs to be about being smaller, direct, DIY and authentic. As the good Congressman and veteran civil rights leader John Lewis put it, it’s time for us all to make some ‘good trouble’. Let’s CELEBRATE the culture of resistance.

Taking History: Steve Schapiro — Good Trouble

Our interview with 85-year-old photographer Steve Schapiro, who photographed the civil rights movement, police aggression, segregation and racism, five decades ago. https://www.goodtroublemag.com/home/taking-history-steve-shapiro

When history was being made, he was there with camera in hand. At the outset of his remarkable six-decade career as a photographer, Steve Schapiro was responsible for some of the most iconic images of the American Civil Rights movement. Aged 85, he sat down with Florian Sturm (in 2019) to reflect on

'Coming-of-age against a back drop of post-war austerity and the explosion of colour that characterized the 1960s counter-culture in London, Penny Slinger embraced her generation’s quest for personal freedom and sexual liberation and channeled these desires into her ground-breaking collages and sculptures. So powerful was her vision that 45 years later her work is still influencing contemporary artists. In 2019, Penny was the subject of the documentary movie Out of the Shadows, directed by Richard Kovitch.' Penny Slinger Penny Slinger - Out Of The Shadows

Through the work of nine artists and two documentaries, east-coast exhibition Fast Fashion/Slow Art depicts the insidious cycle of consumerism and waste in the garment industry. Words by Alyssa Carter In her 1982 live performance, Martha Rosler famously donned a red jumpsuit and slowly sifted
