Maskbook is a collective and engaged work of art, made up of masked portraits from around the world with more than 200 collective workshops and exhibitions. It mobilises the creativity of artists and every individual on a major issue: the link between human health and the environment, which encompasses numerous emergencies: global warming, air pollution, pandemics. Through this project, the anxiety-provoking image of the protective mask is transformed into an expression of optimism and commitment to the planet.
When creating art, Wen Fang (Beijing, 1976) often collaborates with ordinary people: migrant workers, women farmers, children. Social interventions are a major feature of her work, which consist of photography, installations, sculptures, performances.
Art of Change 21 is a French association on the arts and the environment, founded and chaired by Alice Audouin.
